The Interrogative Mood
The Interrogative Mood | Padgett Powell
1 post | 3 read | 1 to read
'If Duchamp or maybe Magritte wrote a novel it might look something like this remarkable little book of Padgett Powell's: immensely readable, ingenious, witty, and ultimately important-feeling in a way you can't quite describe but don't need to' Richard Ford Are your emotions pure? Are your nerves adjustable? How do you stand in relation to the potato? Should it still be Constantinople? Does a nameless horse make you more nervous or less nervous than a named horse? In your view, do children smell good? ... Does your doorbell ever ring? Is there sand in your craw? Is it a novel? Whatever it is, The Interrogative Mood is stubbornly memorable. Through a seemingly random but infinitely artful series of questions this small masterpiece mysteriously, elusively, hilariously, compellingly lights up life.

The Interrogative Mood | Padgett Powell

I just ordered this book. It seems like it's going to be...different. It's all questions.

Laura317 Which brings me to this conundrum: if one Bigfoot is just a Bigfoot, what does one call more than one? Big foots? Big Feet? I hope this question is considered in that book. 3y
