A sharp novel with a chorus of vivid and wholly unique voices, Outline is unconcerned with narrative. Instead, in what reads as one long audition of potential characters for a future novel, Cusk weaves together a series of conversations between an incredibly observant narrator and the various people she meets on her trip to Greece to lead a writing workshop. The result is a sharp and devastating exploration of the inherent distance between people and the way personal storytelling informs how we relate to each other. ~ Reviewed by Gwyn Sise
