Review: Be Mine by Laura Kasischke

Today in January Magazine’s fiction section, contributing editor Tony Buchsbaum reviews Be Mine, Laura Kasischke’s fourth novel for adults. (She’s also written half a dozen books of poetry and a novel for young adults.)

Though Buchsbaum feels the novel starts out strongly enough, in the last third, he reports, things begin to fall apart.

Fiction, while by design a lie, shouldn’t feel like one, but Be Mine does. It feels as if a horrible joke has been played on you, stimulated simply by your turning the pages.
