Give me a second. Because when I tell you that this book amazed me I have to explain why and I need a moment to figure out where the book becomes more than simple pleasure reading. I can tell you it doesn't happen in the form. Steinberg flouts every convention: she confuses her own meaning, she overuses the semicolon--on purpose!--she writes choppy narrative, she writes about things too personal for entertainment, etc. But it's all so gripping and I can't tell you why. Maybe her mantra-like prose sucks you in: you think you're just running your eyes over the lines but all of a sudden the thoughts are pounding through the wires pushing blood from head to toe. Spectacle amazes. Give me a second to come up with an explanation for why.
