For Elefsis, the most important verb is "to be". You might find this strange since Elefsis is a house. Silently and Very Fast
is an odd, haunting, and beautiful tale of a house that has managed to live both inside and outside its occupants. Every part of this novella reads like a dream, but it's a dream that somehow seems like it's not too impossible in a future world where houses are computerized and where people are able to play video games in more of an inner-mind virtual reality setting. It's a tale that had to be written and it's a tale written in such a way as to make me a little sad that the worlds that I create in my mind are not nearly as magnificent as the worlds that this author creates in hers.
