Everyone Was There

Winner of the Elixir Press 2016 Fiction Award.

Everyone Was There is one of the most beautiful experiments I’ve ever read. The gods of absurdity––Barthelme and Millhauser––hover over these pages, yet Varallo’s voice––its intelligence, its deep, brilliant, kind sense of humor, its crazy sympathy––flows so generously and originally through these pages. For me, this is a book to study, and to cherish.
