The Chronology of Water : a Memoir
Yuknavitch, Lidia
Portland, OR : Hawthorne Books, [2010]
Holding breath -- Under blue -- The wet -- Resuscitations -- The other side of drowning.

This is not your mother's memoir. In The Chronology of Water, Lidia Yuknavitch expertly moves the reader through issues of gender, sexuality, violence, and the family from the point of view of a lifelong swimmer turned artist. In writing that explores the nature of memoir itself, her story traces the effect of extreme grief on a young woman's developing sexuality that some define as untraditional because of her attraction to both men and women. Her emergence as a writer evolves at the same time and takes the narrator on a journey of addiction, self-destruction, and ultimately survival that finally comes in the shape of love and motherhood.

Cess : a spokening
Lish, Gordon
New York : OR Books, [2015]
First of two notes -- In the cesspool -- Second note -- Postfix.

"A list. What could be more basic than a list? And a list by Lish is sure to intrigue. In this, Lish's latest work, he delivers a characteristic exhibition of his peculiar deformities of candor, obsession, and wit, via two extended "notes" to the reader, including a pages-long list of essential but perplexing words. Amidst this stream of apparent incongruities, the alert reader will discover an accruing narrative involving the narrator's late, beloved Aunt Adele-a medal-bedecked spy for the National Reconnaissance Office-and cryptography, love, poetry, and of course: the nature of language"--Amazon.com.
