Greenstreet Does It Again

I just finished--although "finished" is not quite the right word--Kate Greenstreet's new book, Young Tambling. It's a genre buster, a memoir of sorts in a hybrid of prose, visuals, and verse. Once again, Greenstreet offers the reader the privilege of walking with her through her mind as she does her days, present and past. Perhaps even future. Greenstreet is a master at expressing a marvelous interiority, a collection of quotes, images, ideas, the day's detritus, and somehow making all of this more than just a pastiche, but a whole in which the parts can be observed and analyzed, but never nailed down as to how they work their mystery. Great book, Kate! I'll be picking it up again and again.
