The Knack of Doing, by Jeremy M. Davies, is a collection a stories by one of the most brilliant and baffling minds in contemporary American fiction. An executioner with a penchant for breeding mice, a story of young love torn apart (literally) by falling glass, a revenge tale told through the cries of an angry mob, are but a few of the oddities on display in Davies’ menagerie of linguistic constraints, slapstick gags, and plot feints. The Knack of Doing is a deadly funny, deadly serious engagement with the limits of literary form. In conversation with novelist Joshua Cohen.
