Composed between destinations, in cafes, museums, airplanes, and bars over three years, Jeanne Graff’s Vzszhhzz captures the glancing intersections of a loose group of artists and lawyers, restaurateurs, philosophers, wine-makers, and boxers whose lives are conducted almost entirely in languages not their own. A loose chronicle masquerading as a novel, Vszhhzz—like Michelle Bernstein’s All The King’s Horses, the Bernadette Corporation’s Reena Spaulings, and Natasha Stagg’s Surveys—couches sharp observations in a laconic and ambient style.
