As If I Ever Got to Read Books Anymore

From Powell's Books:
From the acclaimed bestselling author of Fight Club and Lullaby comes twenty-three of the most horrifying, hilarious, mind-blowing, stomach-churning tales readers will ever encounter, told by people who have answered an ad for a writers' retreat ? "Abandon Your Life for Three Months" ? unaware they're headed to a cavernous and ornate old theater where they are utterly isolated from the outside world. ... This free event takes place at the First Unitarian Church, 1011 SW 12th St., downtown Portland. Seating is limited to first come, first served.

Can't make it, darn. I have been trying to turn Neuza on to Pahlanichukamuk as a great way to immerse herself in the American vernacular, but there are too many strange nouns and syntax twists. Mirrors my experience with Guimaraes-Rosa--whose German translator's memoirs I am still supposedly reading.
