That's from the latest review of Mark Lyons's Brief Eulogies at Roadside Shrines, an extraordinary collection of stories that we've mentioned before on this site. The review appears in The Philadelphia Review of Books, which is becoming known (like Cleaver Magazine) for its insightful takes on new literature.

The reviewer, Michael Antoinetti, is especially impressed by the story "He Do Want to Fly," which presents seven points of view, six of them from patients in a dead-end long-term-care hospital and one from the "cath man" who attends them. Antoinetti remarks, "That Lyons would put himself through the torture of conjuring up this many voices in a short story is a testament to his skill and/or insanity as a writer."
Writing short stories is itself an insanity, so why not go for broke?
The review ends by suggesting that the book is "best paired with" a raccoon burger and Southern Comfort. You'll have to read the story called "Arnold's Roadside Cafe" to find out why.
