The Shortcut by Emily Hall was an intriguing short novel about a woman walking to a meeting with a gallerist. Her narrational style is digressive, circling back to a few scenes and narrating a lot of what Genette would call the iterative, events that occur multiple times like "on Mondays I took a walk to the park" (not a quote from the book, just an example). The woman is an artist trying to get at what her work is. It's an unusual book that I feel I need to revisit to understand it better.
Gave up on Panthers and the Museum of Fire by Jen Craig which was another book about a woman walking with a digressive narration. This one I did not finish, over 50 pages in (of a short novel) I just couldn't grasp what the book was even about. Something just didn't click in it with me.
Zoe Thorogood's It's Lonely at the Centre of the Earth has it moments but felt too scattered for me. Parts of it had a really nice realistic style but more of it had this cartoony style where the narrator/protagonist/author had a head kind of like Charlie Brown and other characters had animal heads for some reason and it really didn't work for me.
Reread all of Moore and Burrows Providence, which remains a mixed bag. Burrows art is better here than in Neonomicon but it still suffers from stiffness and a lack of variety in the characters. A section in one of the last issues has a sequence where each panel seems to be following up on characters from the story (and some real life authors associated with Lovecraft) and it's real hard to tell them all apart and figure out who is who. The mix between the drawn sequences and the journal pages works well to showcase the external versus internal of the progatonist and how he sublimates all the crazy things that happen to him. Something about the ending feels incomplete to me.
