While reading Idra Novey’s Ways to Disappear, first, there was a woman
with a suitcase and a cigar, and then, butterflies appeared.
I disappeared, transfixed. The story transcends expectations and execution,
at once funny and thrilling, and more than anything, innovative.
You will find yourself
after you disappear into the sacred reading silence,
feeling satisfied yet mournful,
wishing you could begin again.
