Ariel Dorfman reviews Doors: A Fiction for Jazz Horn
Deena Metzger Doors: A Fiction for Jazz Horn. Red Hen (CDC, dist.) $18.95 (296p) ISBN 1-888996-99-4In this heartbreaking, heart-making novel, Deena Metzger dares to ask, to truly ask, the question that has haunted our humanity since we first formulated the word for life, spirit, breath: can we bring back the dead, can we help them to speak? Her collaborator and accomplice in the exploration of the answer is none other than Julio Cortazar, one of the great writers of the twentieth century and any century, supposedly deceased in 1984 and the result is a story that will shake the boundaries of what we call reality, what we call fiction, what we call death.
