    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleDoing this one justice will be a challenge I’ll try to let Dutton tell you about this one herselfThis is one for fans of the minimal writ largeI dramatize small moments of my life on the phone or in a public restroom I am all sorts of things in themselves I am in character I am in mint condition I am in my head I am in luck I am in need I am in vogue I am in the red I am in deep I am in tune I am in trouble I am in control I am in the way Meanwhile there are all kinds of decorative details on the buildings downtown and we hardly know how to explain themAnd neither do IOne for fans of the well said or the interestingly saidLater in the day I set out to place coffee cups in peculiar positions and then to combine myself in slow fashion with objects that are off balance I stand on the edge of the dining room table all bathed in light for nearly

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL Kindle We bulldoze small and inconvenient fields of strawberries or corn and replace them with the increasing complexity of everyday life promised lands the right of “choice” boundaries color schemes paper mills etc Everything about this book screams The cerulean sky book cover contrailed and disrupted by lonely airliner shouts for attention The single paragraph 140 page narrative told by protagonist Mrs Robertson is eardrum piercing in its dead on compact sentences that combine in a depth charge force This must be what it is like to read a book in a single sitting in a room immediately after the discharge of a flash grenade Even the title with its extra spacing between letters

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleAfter reading this I can see why as Mike describes in his excellent review this author's Attempts at a Life is nearly a book of epigrams and prose poems That is really where Dutton's strength lies There are so many great lines in this especially in the first half Unfortunately I don't think that was uite sufficient to sustain the length of the book Despite taking breaks in my reading a tad difficult given the momentum of the prose but necessary to keep from ODing on the style I found myself growing bored in the second half Dutton seemed to have used up the better lines the amusing lists of banal objects on her table the plausible lists of words spoken in conversation In the first half we have absurdist but still meaningful passages like this letter the letters were some of my favorite bits In particular Mrs Henry allow me to address you on the subject of nice lawns and nice people hardworking people neighbors within a neighborhood people who

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleLiked its associative suggestive uirky plotlessness about a woman's psychogeographical experience of life in the suburbs with husband Haywood the best named character in a while But it became cloyingly clevercute after twenty or thirty pages Was always aware I was reading what felt like creative writing an interesting approach to narrative Enjoyed it when envisioning the narrator as a Fred Armisen character from Portlandia Not for me ultimately but I can see how some may love it

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleSuburban sprawl is a phenomenon that has the power to overtake landscapes and transform city limits creating a sense of decentralization which as a result births discontinuity and uncertainty regarding the boundaries of urban development In her book Sprawl Danielle Dutton writes toward the space inhabited by the architectural takeover of excessive urban development Domesticated by Dutton’s language Sprawl is an encapsulation of creature comforts home appliances household objects and simplistically gestures at mundane relationships The notion of an adopted materialistic identity arises in the text as a result of residing within the vectors of architectonic construction Sprawl conveys the effects of suburbia on a woman in a failing marriage highlighting its atmosphere of constant entertainment The constant sense of distraction acts as a buffer to prevent her from touching her pain deeply and remaining raveled in the cyclical nature of satisfaction dissati

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleDelightfully weird inexplicably compelling and laugh out loud funny One single 140 page paragraph that reminded me of nothing so much as an impressionist painting hundreds of images arranged like dots on a canvas that are just dots but taken as a whole when you step back convey a scene of light color shadow and sounds that make a world and a mood Takes stream of consciousness to a whole other level I almost bailed at page 20 was drawn along almost against my will and was ultimately gl

    Kindle Danielle Dutton º º SPRAWL PDF ê sprawl download, SPRAWL KindleThis is a devastatingly funny and brilliant book that would totally destroy my fragile aspiring writer ego if it weren't so damn pleasurable to read I was smiling ear to ear the whole time and freuently laughing out loud especially at the narrator's letters to her fellow suburban citizens A seamless prose poem dense satire of the American subdivision landscape and the inane hilarious consumerism it inspires in its inhabitants Dutton's tone reminds me of the garrulous affable narrator of Lyn Hejinian's A Border Comedy and the intrepid enthusiastic essay narrator of Lisa Robertson's Occasional Works and Seven Walks from the Office for Soft Architecture; in SPRAWL the soft architecture of exterior building decoration reminiscent of the surface images that architect Thomas Sieverts calls for to beautify drab exurban cityscapes is transformed into post Eisenhower era still lifes of tables countertops and pools
