For Tregebov, writing is mapping —
tracing the outlines of what is there with humour, wonder, bemusement, and great clarity.
“Perhaps there is a beauty in the logic of mapping; or perhaps the beauty lies in the chaos. The most interesting art performs a simultaneous imposition of order and a resistance to it. This is what Tregebov’s book achieves.” – Prairie Fire
