Inspired by a series of domestic still lifes by photographer Laura Letinsky, Danielle Dutton's absurdly comic and decidedly digressive novel Sprawl chronicles the mercurial inner life of one suburban woman (the dissolving marriage, the crumbs on the countertop, the drunken neighbor careening into the pool, the dead dog on the side of the road), constructing surprising taxonomies that rearrange the banalities, small wonders and accoutrements of contemporary suburban life.

Comments:

Hidden Winter
I love this book so much that I actually used it as an example for a significant portion of my Master's thesis on the concept of suburbia in contemporary literature. I don't normally write reviews on Amazon, but I felt compelled because this one was so poorly reviewed...then I realized it was poorly reviewed by college students who seemed annoyed at having to read a challenging book. This book has neither traditional plot nor traditional layout, but deals instead with a conceptual approach to the experience of a space. It is a very, very, very good read...

Besides, if you love literature, surely you'll agree: poor reviews from confused college students almost always mean a book is at least worth a shot.

I deeply admire what this book is attempting to do, but I couldn't get through it. I was new to experimental literature when I first read it; maybe I should try again someday.

The book is not a very good read. I would never recommend it for the beach. What would I recommend it for? I recommend it is you want to study literature and writing. This book goes on to say a lot about the human psych. I bought it for a class, read it all the way through, and after discussing the book and its themes in class I have a better understanding of human nature and writing itself.
It is a bittersweet book. If you are a writer, you may want to read it to study your craft. Don't buy it if you just want a book to read because it is basically pointless.

In the summer, when I am walking around my neighborhood, doing the laundry, making some sort of meal, I think of this excellent take on suburbia, domestic life, possession, and consumption. Like Dutton's other work, the writing performs its subject; that is, these lines are sprawling and nervous, amassing objects, observing, like a still-life painting, the detritus of the everyday.

What a wonderfully strange and delicious novel that will put you in the mind of a modern-day "Mrs. Dalloway." Danielle Dutton's voice is assured, playful and sensuous. Somewhere out there, Virginia Woolf is smiling.

I got this book for a class and hate it, I don't even know why I still have it. I found it strange and fairly boring. Not worth the time it took to read.
