Rob A Mackenzie’s “Fleck and the Bank”

My review of Rob A Mackenzie’s brilliant wee book Fleck and the Bank is now up at Sabotage.

Rob A. Mackenzie’s wee book, from the Salt Modern Voices series, is a tight, clear, wry piece of wonder, and a great use of the pamphlet form. Its small and simple purpose to “make partial sense” of the author’s absent friend, Fleck is made loud and deep by being set in a credit crunching world of financial illusion where “the flies have started dining out on other flies”.
