I Review Paul Lisicky’s Novel, “The Burning House”

without comments

Mirsky, an artistic, college-educated, unemployed jack-of-all-trades, has not only the soul but the voice of a poet. We hear that voice right away, as this quiet book of desire and self-discovery opens with a paragraph originally published as a prose poem that begins:

“The rising seas, the sinking lawn: none of that bothered me tonight. Laura’s health and mind shifting like water.’’

I review Paul Lisicky’s new novel, The Burning House,  in the  May 31, 2011, edition of The Boston Globe.

You can buy The Burning House at Barnes & Noble.
