    1. Butterfly Stories is an accessible starting place, as is Rainbow Stories. I also loved The Ice-Shirt. There’s a great collection of his stuff called Expelled from Eden, which is a fantastic overview/nice selections.
      I’m currently reading his big novel Europe Central—third attempt, but finally made a dent into it.

  1. Just scratching the surface of what Vollmann offers. Read Afghanistan Picture Show, Into The Forbidden Zone and forays into The Rifles, Whores For Gloria, and The Atlas. I think the more you read, all roads will lead to Vollmann. Definitely the writer of the moment.
    Adds a humanist ‘spirituality’ to the sometimes purely cerebral life of books and reading. Hope I’m making sense here.
