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