*Leslie Scalapino. That They Were at the Beach. 1985. 111 pp.

I got this book at that same bookstore in Columbus Ohio. I sense the influence of Robbe-Grillet in a way that hadn't occurred to me before. I still think Considering How Exaggerated Music Is might be a little better. There is an excessive reliance on the "ablative absolute" which comes to seem a mannerism.
