Always unconventional, ever experimental novelist Mark Danielewski (House of Leaves; Only Revolutions) reemerges with The Fifty-Year Sword, a novella which has been percolating since at least 2005. Not easily described, the adult ghost story masquerading as a children's tale invites us to join a birthday party that features a solicitous, somewhat overwhelmed seamstress; the mistress of her ex-husband; a band of unruly orphans; and a storyteller who arrives with a magical weapon. More easily enjoyed than explained.
