The title is Goings, but readers will ask “Going where?,” at least initially. Those who relish a challenge can rely on Lish to offer literary surprises couched in experimental prose that demands concentration and patience. Delights hidden in this short book include rhythmic language, conversations that ring true to the age and experience of the characters, and, as the book progresses, the fun of wordplay, glorious puns, and generous references to scholars, writers, mythological beings, and intellectual geniuses.
