So I got Evan Dara’s fourth novel, Permanent Earthquake. There’s no summary blurb for it, but it seems to concern, like, an earthquake that is ongoing, or, if you will, permanent. The first 25 pages are written in the first-person; the novel then gives way to a third-person “he.” More thoughts to come. More on Dara:
My review of Dara’s last publication, the play Provisional Biography of Mose Eakins.
Daniel Green on Dara’s youngish oeuvre.
Ryan Chang and I riff on Dara’s last novel, Flee.
And I’ll close by saying that Dara’s first novel The Lost Scrapbook is an overlooked classic of late American postmodernism.
