Lydia Millet

The CSM reviews Lydia Millet’s Oh Pure And Radiant Heart. I heard Millet read a section of the book at Park Lit in brooklyn a couple weeks ago. I was initially distracted by the event’s feel: a dozen mostly white folks transplanted to Prospect Park. But I snapped into the reading when Millet read the section where the protagonist imagines what she would choose if given the choice to either live in chaos or to not exist at all. She chooses the chaos.
