Advance Praise for the Book:

“Maria Fusco’s verbs quiver. Some call this art. Whether white cube or popular, deadpan or slapstick, Fusco’s scintillating mobility invites us to savour a new kind of critical empathy.” (Lisa Robertson)

“After a book like this, most nonfiction seems curiously unaware of what writing can be.” (James Elkins)
