Greg Bem reviews Matthew Johnstone's ( kiln ) (2017)

Our pal Greg Bem is on a roll lately, it seems, providing yet another review; this time, he's posted the first review of Matthew Johnstone's ( kiln ) (2017) at Goodreads. Thanks so much! You can see the original review here.
Johnstone has crafted a phantasmagoric book with (kiln ). The language moves in an out of etherea, often appearing cinematographic but then moving into something remotely personal, reflective, from within. This blend between the external and the self paints a lucid picture for the reader. Dare I say it feels representational of what the seems and fabrics of the daily reality appear to us to be?
