Language of the Heart: A Review of Micheline Aharonian Marcom's A Brief History of Yes --- Jason DeYoung | Numéro Cinq
A Brief History of Yes is seemingly a novel about a break-up, but it is also about an inestimable loss of something, something nameless, ancient, beyond or before language. Its cohesion is mourning. Ineluctable sorrow manifests in its structure and grammar, in its sounds and imagery. In prose, in thought, in raw emotion it defies expectations, seeking in its disregard of traditional novel form to describe in the “language of the heart.” --- Jason DeYoung
