The Singing Fish
Author: Peter Markus
Publisher: Calamari Press (2006)
The interwoven tales that make up The Singing Fish are not told but rather spun from a primal, almost child-like source of mythic language sublimated from the fundamental building blocks of mud, brother, river, girl, moon, fish and a rusted nail.
"Peter Markus' gorgeously spare, riverine fables of brotherly sweetness and violence are hypnotic, haunting, and sublime"
"There is an obsessive quality about Peter Markus' writing that I am obsessed with and a musicality that I cannot get out of my head. The fish are singing and Peter Markus is too."
