Today in January Magazine’s fiction section, contributing editor Tony Buchsbaum examines The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier.

Brockmeier’s writing is a joy. It’s spare, though not Spartan, made so by his choices of telling detail, which are beautiful, simple, and spot on. There’s not a superfluous word here, and so the reading goes quickly.

Buchsbaum’s full review is here.
