Calendar of Regrets by Lance Olsen

By Lance Olsen

Calendar of Regrets is a wildly artistic and visually wealthy university of twelve interconnected narratives, one for every month of the 12 months, all relating notions of travel—through time, house, narrative, and death.


The poisoning of the painter Hieronymus Bosch; anchorman Dan Rather’s mysterious mugging on Park road as he strolls domestic by myself one October night; a sequence of postcard meditations at the inspiration of commute from a tender American journalist traveling Burma; a husband-and-wife crew of fundamentalist Christian suicide bombers; the parable of Iphigenia from Agamemnon’s daughter’s element of view—these and different tales shape a mosaic, hooked up via a trend of musical motifs, transposed scenes, and ordinary characters. it's a narrative approximately narrativity itself, the human obsession with telling ourselves and our worlds time and again in an try and stabilize a fact that, as Nabokov as soon as stated, may still basically exist inside of citation marks.
