Item description for Household Mechanics (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by Sarah Mangold...
Sarah Mangold's brilliant and eccentric Household Mechanics is about the attempt at telling the story. And the impossibility of telling the story. Never fully narrated but introduced and re-introduced, a continuous attempts at a telling. Overheard conversation, family stories, literary theory, music, and even TV become part of history---what you repeat and share---the story you retell. What is the story? It is an attempt at communication---the reattempt---with different words. It is an attempt at telling it right---that there is no right---no ultimate story.
