In James Marcus's fluid translation, Abecedary's brief and moving vignettes combine a loving attention to the mundane and the everyday--meals and clothing, furniture and phone calls, flashes of landscape or weather--with an abundance of tangible detail, alluding always to that most intangible and fleeting of subjects: human feeling.
"Exquisite miniatures . . . some of Goffredo Parise's work is as subtle as James Joyce's." --New York Times Book Review
"Hypnotic, mood-inducing stories that cast a hard spell to shake." --Kirkus Reviews
