Glaciers (A Tin House New Voice)

Glaciers - Alexis M. Smith I am stuck between giving this 2-3 stars.

It reads well but calling it a novel for something so 'slight' doesn't seem to do it justice and it does have that clever MFA trick of having the beginning circle onto itself (no spoilers here)

It does come across as precious along the veins of Miranda July and can read as being too self-conscious and clever.

I feel there could be much more.
