"Leslie Scalapino's writing reveals how far language—and therefore thought itself—can go beyond what we are accustomed to, and the forms in which she writes delightfully defy our expectations. Yet her work is infused with a seriousness, a passion, a timeliness, and an intelligence with which we profoundly identify. A new book by Leslie Scalapino is—always!—cause for celebration.
