Description


Fiction. Poetry. NICETIES is a subversive text of lingual dissonance in which vocality precedes sense-making operations. Its phonics disrupt narrative through syntactical atonalities.

If you're weary of mild, obedient prose, try plunging into the pages of Elizabeth Mikesch's exuberant debut. This book is witchcraft: stories refreshingly loosely translated from the real by a mind that moves on its own.--Noy Holland

It will hardly do the trick to say that NICETIES is a breath of fresh air. In Elizabeth Mikesch's compressedly melodious prose, a reader inhales purifying drafts of something entirely unexpected in these literary dog days--not some novelty intoxicant concocted as a careerist stunt but some rarer ether releasing itself at long last into the world to dazzle, yes, but also to clarify so much of what we had never dreamed clarifiable about the ecstasy of our human mess.--Gary Lutz.
