by DowninginReading on November 1, 2012Gustav Mahler wrote his Songs on the Death of Children, a theme resonant in history forward and backward from Mahler's time. The emotional power of the idea overwhelms us; it is a parent''s abiding fear, no matter the age of the child.
In "The Revised Fundamentals" we witness the shattered life of a parent trying to find life after death while caring for another doomed child. Amid this gloomy, soul wrenching landscape, Evison strews humor, understanding compassion and at times a caustic wit, discarding much common wisdom while revealing triumphant humanity.
