Matt Bell Wolf Parts

Matt Bell's Wolf Parts is just over 40 pages. Each page reinvents itself, setting a new stage, adding a new detail, changing. Several of the pages are not full pages but thick, violent, and sexual vignettes. Each of Bell's sentences is carefully detailed, full of symbolism. While reading it Peter Markus came to mind because of Wolf Parts repetition of violence and love. If you can get your hands on this book you'll read it again and again.

When I was only halfway through the short book it became clear to me that Bell's upcoming book HOW THEY WERE FOUND had become one my most anticipated releases of the year.

Wolf Parts was a limited edition print but the audio file of Bell reading it can be downloaded from Keyhole Press for $2.

HOW THEY WERE FOUND is forthcoming from Keyhole Press, October 5, 2010.

This book sits by my bed. I have the audio. I died when I listened to it. I ran and worked up panic then entered the headphones. It was crushing. The might of Bell is strong.

Matt Bell us a fantastic and versatile writer. I've not listened to the audio yet. I've not been in a dark enough room.
