Andrew Jarvis’ Landslide commits now and ever to a future where ruins—the human predicament—might squish in bogs until waterways bear melons and dead seabirds revive sacredness, the bottom and top of the same landscape and slide, without distraction of cliché. Landslide is a wonderful read—lyrical as the miracle of waking up alive every morning.
