Review of the Ravickians

I don’ t know about you, but after finishing The Ravickians I was left with the feeling that I hadn’t understood most of what I had just read. Here is a link to a review done on Dzanc Books, which I found helpful.

“The production of these holes is one of the most amazing things Gladman is able to do with The Ravickians. Had she merely described them, merely enumerated the disappeared, the fled, qualified the lack of laughter in the street with the revving of an engine, the effect would have been poetic, even meaningful, but it would have failed to convey the dimension of these absences” (DeBeauchamp).
