Heavy Feather Review

There is a great, thoughtful review of The Story of How All Animals Are Equal & Other Tales by Mike Jacoby over at Heavy Feather. 'The images,' Jacoby writes, 'in addition to the sentences, are crystalline, pretty, and border on bizarre. On the sentence level, readers will be driven forward by language that feels like one of Runkle’s texturized collages.' And this:
The impact of isolation continuously evolves in Runkle’s collection, culminating in a devastating yet satisfying final tale. Hang out with Runkle’s stories long enough to become oriented in them, and you lean in little by little until you’re absorbed. 
You can buy the book from Small Press Distribution, where it's now on their 'SPD Recommends' list!
