      4.5 5Upon starting this novella, a strange feeling of deja vu descended upon me things seemed familiar, as if the universe was trying to let me in on some divine secret about the interconnectedness of things Finally, a few pages in, lightning struck and I realized drum roll oh, I ve read this before, and not than a month or two ago This is one of the stories in Horvath s collection of stories Understories Duped, cheated Is that how I felt after realizing I spent money on a story I already owned [...]

      From the opening sentence there was a voice quiet, confidential I knew I could rely on it and that I was in good hands Novella sized, 68 pages, Circulation did not touch on but explored novel sized ideas, Philosophy death, the configurations and origins of story telling, the sources and flowering of imagination Never did it announce that it was doing so The writing flowed with effortless fluidity Therefore its profound impact did not reach me till later Humor edged and taut with the imagination [...]

      Last year my father passed away at the age of 51, but I had lost him nearly twenty years earlier Through a child s eye, I thought he was a superstar, radio personality, music engineer, musician, and song writer, it all seemed logical and real I would go on remote broadcasts, sit quietly in the studio as he qued up vinyl and spoke to what I thought was the world Our apartment was filled with vinyl and demo tapes When he left, I m sure he thought he was pursing his dreams, but he didn t realize al [...]

      Circulation is a great read, centering around relationships and all their complex quirks I revisit Circulations on my blog at tieryas.wordpress 2013 06

    5. Kane Faucher on said:

      I rarely if ever employ foodie analogies when reviewing a book, but in this case I feel compelled perhaps not justified as such Horvath s svelte offering was very much like eating a gourmet appetizer Drizzled with a poignant literary sauce, a few impeccable dashes of the right spices to give Circulation its right pacing for my discerning palate, this is indeed a narrative of the search variety, an attempt to trace the cartography of the narrator s life using a map of landmark clues Not that this [...]

      I really loved this little book So often I find that I don t read small books like this because they read as half hearted This story begins like a little adventure, where the father is a bold figure to his son because he is always in the process of writing a book about caves, but once the father is hospitalized and falling apart, his son begins telling the father stories about what has happened to the book The story builds to the point where I m reading too fast to see what happens next Excellen [...]

      A great story for bibliophiles, bookworms and other such individuals myself included and a great nod to the power of storytelling In addition, what I think is at least my own personal take on it, a great meditation on the power of a dream or aspiration The Atlas becomes a defining part of the father s life, arguably destructive in some ways yet still central to the father as a character and in the eyes of his son Though The Atlas is never completed and though Spelos never reaches true recognitio [...]

      Reading this this morning, interrupted at the end of section 1 by breakfast I am very much a daily routine person Paging through the new P W while eating breakfast, though, I come across an article about BookCrossing and Better World Books, complete with picture of BWB s 680K of shelving holding 3 million books, and details of BookCrossing s catch and release book tracking program.Not coincidence, convergence Emerson There is in nature a parallel unity which corresponds to the unity in the mind [...]

      You know when a story begins with the magical words, When we were awash with youth, that it s going to be a stunning read Circulation did not disappoint.This novella is a beautiful piece of literary fiction alongside elegantly written musings about the mysterious creation of stories, Horvath sows precious, realistic moments of family life, from in jokes about tracking the voyage of a fart on a road trip to the growing apart of siblings, from parental pressure to settle down with a good girl to h [...]

      Beautifully written, precise, intelligent prose This award winning story makes the perfect novella, along with Sunnyoutside s complementary design.

    12. Amy on said:

      This little tome made me just go, Wow after I finished reading it Beautifully written, this is a touching story about a man and his father, a certain sliver of their family history, life, death I just really loved it.Nicely designed, too by Rich Kegler of P22 Type Foundry cover and publisher David McNamara the insides I urge you to buy and read this now.

    13. Michael Riccio on said:

      I can t exactly explain why I was so taken away by this book, it may have been the poetic prose that seamlessly carries you through the narrative, or just an incredibly empathetic protagonist Either way, for a 68 page novella I was sucked in and only disappointed by how short the story was Definitely worth a read, can get through in less than two hours.

    14. Tantra Bensko on said:

      A beautiful novella that fills in the holes in the heart with glee, and shelves imaginary books in there too, which grow words when you aren t looking This book becomes and compelling as it goes further and further into explorations of the role of being heard, being read, being understood, even if really, we can t be understood at all.

    15. Hosho on said:

      Smart design and an even smarter book a moving yarn about fathers and sons and the ambitious attempt at cataloging a life to better understand it.

    16. Brent on said:

      A short, punchy story with a narrator that seems to be equal parts Edward Bloom Big Fish and Scheherazade One Thousand and One Nights This is a great read for procrastinators, bibliophiles or anyone who appreciates a good yarn.

    17. Owen on said:

      A really marvelous story, reminiscent of Steven Millhauser, which circuitously links the narrator s memories of childhood and his father s obsessions to his current profession of library circulation director It s about where stories come from the literal place of origin and where they go to after they re told, and there are some eminently mullworthy ideas about reading, writing, publishing, maps, and families.It s elegantly written, and elegantly printed to boot.
