Murnane’s fiction is woven from images-the reflections of the surroundings solar on far away windowpanes, doubtless unlimited grasslands, a procession of dark-haired ladies, a clearing in a woodland, the colours indigo and silver-grey, and the mysterious loss of life of a tender woman-which construct to an emotional crescendo that's all of the extra robust for the intricacy of its patterning.
