Perhaps the best way to communicate what this story is, is to describe what it isn’t. Tyler and Woods’s prose contains little of traditional literary techniques. The narrator, his sister and none of the other characters mentioned have names. No backstory is introduced to explain their situation. Simple, experimental, and often challenging language pervades the text, accompanied by Woods’s equally cryptic graphics. Only the barest of plots is visible, yet the story’s climax is as powerful as that of the most meticulously planned novel.
