I find myself in need of a new way to showcase titles, so am "test driving" different alternatives. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve.
This week's test drive is with Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews. I really enjoy Tynga's blog and love that she includes updates about her new baby, who is just the sweetest thing! Too cute!
Received an offer to review this book from the author. While I've really cut back on the number of review requests I'm accepting in my hopeless quest to whittle my TBR pile down to manageable size, this one sounded too unique and interesting to turn down!

We Bury the Landscape is an exhibition of literary art. Ekphrasis, collected. One hundred flash fictions and prose poems presented to view. From the visual to the textual, transmuting before the gallery-goer’s gaze, the shifting contours of curator Kristine Ong Muslim’s surreal panorama delineate the unconventional, the unexpected, and the unnatural. Traversing this visionary vista’s panoply of “rooms of unfinished lives,” the reader unearths and examines and reanimates - revealing the transcendent uncanniness that subsists underfoot.
This was a nice surprise from William Morrow! I thought that they didn't mail out surprises any more, but any day that there's a book waiting on my doorstep is a good day! This one sounds intriguing, and the synopsis reminds me of The Slap.

"This is a story about a terrible thing which happens to me. I have to warn you that nobody is bad or good here, or rather everyone is a bit bad and a bit good and the bad and the good moluscules get mixed up against each other and produce terrible chemical reactions. Did you know cheetahs cannot retract their claws?"
