Item description for Other Electricities: Stories by Ander Monson...

Through an unsettling, almost crazed gestalt of sketches, short stories, lists, indices, and radio schematics, Ander Monson presents a world where weather, landscape, radio waves, and electricity are influential characters in themselves, affecting an entire community held together by the memories of those they have lost. Other Electricities charts a new and strange direction in American fiction.

this book: hell yeah  May 12, 2008
NOT LIKE EGGERS, please. but wondrous & complex. like snow in your living room, like snow in your heart. AM, u r very awesome.
Poor portryal of a great town  Oct 19, 2007
Although I have not yet finished this book, I would like to state, as a resident of the small community in which the novel takes place (as well as a graduate of the same high school as the author) that it is not depressing of an area as portrayed in the book. Yes, we do have a ton of snow, and yes the winters are long and dark, but it is a beautiful area with a million great things to do. Don't judge the area as one of cold, dark despair, for it is not.
other  Oct 10, 2007
Much like a bedroom window, luminous if a book ever was; relentless, romantic, and dreamy. Like a secret scribbled on torn notebook paper. Reminiscent of Dave Eggers, if you enjoyed "staggering genius" then you should check this out.
Crackling "Electricities"  Apr 12, 2006
A handful of times in your life you pick up a book that you know almost immediately is destined to be in that small cluster of books you consider personal touchstones. This is one. It's so fearless, so exhilaratingly creative, so completely inhabited, and captures the feel of life so well it's almost a living, breathing thing in and of itself. If aliens landed on earth and asked me for a book that portrayed midwestern life in a small town, my first impulse would probably be to give them Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio. However, if they wanted to know what that life felt like in all its quietest, loneliest and most intense moments, I'd give them this one. Monson is a genius. This book is a flat-out masterpiece.
