Circulation

Circulation - Tim Horvath, David McNamara A really marvelous story, reminiscent of Steven Millhauser, which circuitously links the narrator's memories of childhood and his father's obsessions to his current profession of library circulation director. It's about where stories come from—the literal place of origin—and where they go to after they're told, and there are some "eminently mullworthy" ideas about reading, writing, publishing, maps, and families.It's elegantly written, and elegantly printed to boot.
