Unexhausted Time

Offered in evidence this quote from Imogen Cassel’s review of Lurex by Denise Riley and Unexhausted Time by Emily Berry in the TLS (6/3/22): “Emily Berry’s Unexhausted Time shares Riley’s concern about the overstudied subject, her restless repositioning. Berry’s title comes from Anne Carson’s response to George Eliot’s claim that 'Attempts at description are stupid.’"This isn’t a pregnant paragraph. It’s one that’s given birth. Do you feel lost? Who cares? At a certain point a locution like a relationship is unto itself. Or put another way. Let’s say you take a wrong turn and end up in a place that’s much nicer than your intended destination. Don’t worry. Just lie back and enjoy the new place.
