Rita Indiana’s Doorbell

The opening of Tentacle

Spot a newly arrived novel at the library, Tentacle by Rita Indiana (originally La mucama de Omicunlé). Read the back cover. Kind words from The Observer and The Guardian, one comparing the author to Kathy Acker (“with a tighter narrative grip”). Maybe I’ll dig this. Read the first sentence. Off to a good start, to say the least.
