In a pivotal moment, Nadir Birdgrave sells his early sketches for Blue Peal #7 to his fifth stalker, a middle-school substitute teacher named Katarina M. Katarina, in a consolatory email to Mr. Birdgrave, reproaches a derisive critic who supposed that Mr. Birdgrave created the Blue Peal series by "merely looping the rope of his theme through the grommet of his experience and hoisting the flag of his vanity up the pole of his . . ." etc., etc. An empathic nocturnal poet, Katarina, stalking for advice, scours Mr.She resents Mr. Birdgrave's temporary Blue Peal affair with commercialism, which undermines Katarina's reputation, among the members of her Thursday sushi club, as a connoisseur of raw integrity.

Daivd Barringer challenges the reader (and himself) with his eclectic collection of stories, essays and exercises. In some ways reminiscent of 1001 Nights or Cantebury Tales, The Leap shows a writer of amazing breadth and depth, flexing his literary muscles and demonstrating his ability to adopt so many voices and genres. If you are bored with predictable writing that can be easily pigeon-holed, you should enjoy the challenge of The Leap.
This collection of stories is very captivating, annoying, exciting, depressing, joyful, confusing, odd...
All and all you will be engrossed by the writing style and content that Barringer provides. For a sample of his writings check out his web site, it's what convinced me to purchase his book.
