the last book I ever read (Valeria Luiselli's Lost Children Archive: A Novel, excerpt seven)

from Lost Children Archive: A Novel by Valeria Luiselli:

“I am an invisible man.” It’s a barren, perfect first sentence. But no, not Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, either. What we want is to overlay the stretch of the drive ahead with a voice and a narrative that may glove itself upon the landscape, and not something that will jerk our minds elsewhere while we move across this humid entanglement of creepers upon forests. Next. Play.
