Overview

A Book So Red was the winning manuscript in the 2014 Caketrain Competition, as judged by Peter Markus.

###

"A Book So Red's linguistic singularities, formal contractions, and world comprised of the existential non-sequitur coalesce into an astonishing aesthetic teratoid: the vacuum-packed denarration. The narrator's skewed, oblique and painful relationships teach us the only real comedy is the sound of laughter in the dark all the way down."

-Lance Olsen, author of Theories of Forgetting

###

"Rachel Levy is a wizard-gory, tender and wickedly funny."

-Noy Holland, author of Bird

###

"It's as if Rachel Levy put the carcass of the novel on the butcher block: choice language cutlets remain."

-Sara Levine, author of Treasure Island!!!

###

"Heartbreaking, horrifying, beautiful and ugly, the narrator of Rachel Levy's A Book So Red explores her world from the inside out with the precision of a mapmaker. From Munich to an American farm to Berlin and through a cast of characters, the one constant is her mirac¬ulous and astonishing voice."

-Myfanwy Collins, author of The Book of Laney

###

"Rachel Levy, here in what might at first appear to be a pint-sized collection of fractured miniatures, offers us instead heaving-with-feeling fictions that are elliptical and driven by suggestion, though what is most fully and singularly revealed here is a world where much is said-too much, this too might be true-so that what is left unsaid, what the speaker chooses to tell just us-her listeners in this se¬quence of most private tellings-takes on the heft of a bedside confession."

-Peter Markus, author of The Fish and the Not Fish
