Alfred Yuson reviews The Ruin of Everything

Award-winning writer and literary critic Alfred A. Yuson reviews Lara Stapleton’s The Ruin of Everything:

“…Stapleton appears to have set out to navigate crisscrossing lives by simply allowing the characters, especially the I-persona, to adjudicate between everyday instances of hope and anguish… The navigation is skillfully conducted through shifting maps of loneliness, angst, and the occasional ruin of everything. The inherent intricacies develop a matrix of resultant debris that keeps the story-telling in the throes of deep engagement.” Read full review here.
