"More and more my foremost, abiding desire is to write books of a surpassing strangeness, and to do this I've had to hold closely to Joyce's famous adage of silence, cunning, and exile every day. This means I have to show up at the desk each day before dawn, and so I do like a poor man showing up for a rather mysterious handout, lighting a candle in his tattered cardigan as he sits over an illuminated screen, aware the entire time that this love of language is the deepest and most consistently astonishing thing he knows."
Robert Vivian, author of Lamb Bright Saviors (University of Nebraska Press, 2010)
