The Evening Papers
Matthew Kirby burrows down into his wonderfully odd fictions with a rigorous wit, intellect, and imagination. The richness of his details makes the stories both convincing and tender, and his careful observation evinces a writer who is willing to follow a story wherever it leads, well beyond its basic premise. Kirby’s sentences, stories, and invented worlds possess the quality I most admire in fiction—they’re surprising.
