The US Review of Books on Morrison’s Myth of Pterygium

August 11, 2022

Thank you to Kat Kennedy with the US Review of Books for recommending Diego Morrison’s debut novel Myth of Pterygium. Winner of the 2021 Rising Writer Prize, Myth of Pterygium exemplifies the interplay between form and prose, a quality noted by Kennedy, saying:

One of the first things one notices about this short novel is its unusual beginning chapters which grow in length from a one-sentence first chapter to full pages. This technique effectively mirrors the protagonist’s growing eye infection, his wife’s growing belly, his growing debts, the city’s growing pollution, and the country’s growing death tolls.”
