A woman wanders from room to
room, or ventures outside, and throughout the

"Quietly plumbing the intimacies of architecture, landscape, and domesticity,
Unrue's debut, The House, develops a muted intensity through
serial blocks of
meditative prose... Displaying the influence of writers as diverse
Bachelard, Charles Olson and Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Unrue successfully
an evocative approach that could be seen as metacubist in its dizzying,
takes of the familiar world."
