    • Adding a video review:youtube/watch?v=uh8TOmIt's so rare for a book that not only experiments with ideas, but the form and craft of writing itself. Janice Lee's, "Daughter," is probably one of the most unique and thought-provoking books I've read in recent memory. There are some pages where the paragraphs burst with fascinating ideas that make you question the whole of existence. There are some beautiful photos (by Rochelle Ritchie Spencer) within its pages, a compelling menagerie that perfectly [...]


    • The idea that this is called a novel is wonderful, creating a new idea of what narrative, what linear progression of a story can entail, and thus, what life is, what our minds are, and what god and his brother, god, see when they look at the world through us, and our subconscious.

    • “Who is to say I’m not God and I just don’t remember it?”*Janice Lee’s slim novel is a very poetic work — full of disruptions, non sequiturs, and fractured dialogue. There’s a vague semblance of a plot involving the daughter, her mother, and an octopus found in the desert. With shoutouts to everyone from Nietzsche to Sesame Street, Janice Lee’s experimental novel is an energetic and enigmatic read.
