Texas Review Press, 2021


Like a funereal mask studded with gemstones on its inside, Imagine a Death embodies a vast, preternatural and intensely intimate terrain, slipping headfirst into the impossible expanses between suffering and mourning, seeking and failing, spiral and flame. For Janice Lee is not the sort to turn her back where others duck and cover; sentence by sentence, her rhapsodic fearlessness and tender logic not only reflects and withstands, it listens back; it redefines as it rewires what’s gone missing; it refuses to give in to its regrets. The result is the greatest work to-date of one of America’s most elemental voices and death-defiers, a kind of lamp that breaks the dark. – Blake Butler, author of Alice Knott
