Mark Z. Danielewski: The Fifty Year Sword

Hosted by

Mark Z. Danielewski's The Fifty Year Sword (Pantheon) is a ghost story about the weave of storytelling itself, written in sparse fragments of dialogue punctuated by faint embroidery, grim illustrations, and blank spaces. The experimental novelist regards all stories as both tapestries and echo chambers.
