The Fifty Year Sword - Mark Z. Danielewski My advice for people reading this book is to read it along with the performance (with shadows) available on YouTube. Trying to follow along with the different colored quotation marks is an exercise in frustration, but hearing it read brings out the lyricism. Which voice is saying exactly what is not as important as experiencing the different voices stitching together the intertwined stories. Some of the imagery is fantastic, and there’s a unique use of language that supports and evokes that imagery almost perfectly at times.
