A nice review at Music & Literature of the latest book from Gerald Murnane, A Million Windows. For those of you who have been enjoying Murnane’s late style, as seen in Barley Patch and A History of Reading, this is very much of a piece with that project. Although it’s also its own book, not simply a retread of what Murnane has done in those titles.
Interestingly, Murnane’s 40-year-old title A Lifetime on Clouds was recently re-released, and it’s very pertinent to A Million Windows. Murnane revisits (at length) one of the key images from that book.
We’ll also have a very good essay on Million Windows in the upcoming issue of The Quarterly Conversation.
