The Myth of the Simple Machines

Synopsis

The Myth of the Simple Machines by Laurel Snyder

The gorgeous simplicity of Laurel Snyder's language makes all the possibilities-and the impossibility-of living stand out starkly. Her machines are thought machines, memory machines, the machines of false and daily logic, and we recognize them all. And, of course, they don't work this time either, but Snyder has found the poignancy in this, and more than that, she has found its meaning. A startling and touching book. --Cole Swensen
