legendary

something I wanted to say about Chromos, by Felipe Alfau, but did not, in my original review: you have to stick with this book because there is such a payoff! At least two of the stories in this many-layered panorama are so tremendously astonishing and brilliant that they seem the stuff of legend, as if essential ingredients of the human dreamscape, as if drawn cleanly from the deepest wells of creative inspiration. Who does that?
