Green Lights is a surreal fable set in a neighborhood that goes on forever, where the light is always changing color It s the story of two people in love, a friend with a problem, and an old man who eats children but also one about perception, the gaps between universes, and the struggle to find happiness in a dangerous, sometimes incomprehensible world Spacious and mysGreen Lights is a surreal fable set in a neighborhood that goes on forever, where the light is always changing color It s the story of two people in love, a friend with a problem, and an old man who eats children but also one about perception, the gaps between universes, and the struggle to find happiness in a dangerous, sometimes incomprehensible world Spacious and mysterious, like a fairytale from Cloud City Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day Kyle Muntz wants to talk to you about color And you ll want to listen, because the light that flickers and floats behind this extraordinarily conceived and executed book will have you utterly transfixed This is a book about love, loss, pain, and other people the big important stuff but also about the way we perceive, the way the world shapes itself, and the way we shape ourselves in response The sky can only go so long without a moon, writes Muntz, and so instead of taking away the moon, he s given us a new sky one that seems as fickle as starlight, even as it folds us in and lights our way in the darkness Green Lights is a singular, beautiful book Amber Sparks, author of May We Shed These Human Bodies Kyle Muntz has attained an uncanny access to the places where the boulevards of perception and memory veer into the rutted gutters of longing and loss that run alongside them Ghosts, colors, dreams, and the everyday coexist blissfully in the kaleidoscopic Green Lights Muntz spins ephemera into koans, koans into stories, and eventually the stories themselves coalesce in a sort of giddy, gorgeous wisdom that feels as elusive and necessary as breath itself Tim Horvath, author of Understories A novel freed from time and restriction, by turns impish and sinister Robert Kloss, author of The Alligators of Abraham

I wish there were more colors in the spectrum.Review up at HTMLGiantmlgiant/reviews/green-li

I'm violently torn between thinking this is Muntz's most approachable work and his most complexly enigmatic. The fact that it is beautiful and brilliant would go without saying, if I hadn't just said it. It has both the etherial comfort and disquiet of myth combined with both the bare humor and starkness of alt lit. There isn't a good way to sum this; reading is the only way to get even a fleeting grasp on a little bit of it. Do that.

February 7. 2014In his semi-world of predominate primary colors, Kyle Muntz depicts a monolithic landscape through the desire of fire and ice and skeleton and cane and in a place where ‘trees looked like flower.’ Like a filmmaker, Muntz uses the literary device of these colorless collapsible reflectors of colors to bring to light and to highlight and to heighten the portrait of his narrative on minimalism. He quickly introduces us to E, the sweetheart of the protagonist, and M, the mastermin [...]

An evershifting narrative/world. It's all surreal and beautiful but it manages to capture the feeling of being alive with other humans better than many novels I've ever read. In a way, it reminds me of Samuel R Delany's Dhalgren, although much more focused and compact, but it has that same sort of lawlessness found there, where reality's laws and rules can shift, and the shifting changes so many things, but people are still just people, acting strangely. Humanly.Interview to come!

Dreamscape; Existentialism; Echoes of Religion and Tradition—these, among others, represent the themes that are presented to us, and challenge us, in the reading of Kyle Muntz’s Green Lights, a novella structured within a surrealist neighborhood that responds to and depends upon the current spectral landscape. That is to say, color, and the narrator’s fixation on and repetition of the phrase, “I want to talk about color.” Whether or not this is a literal reference to the desire to disc [...]

One of the weirdest little books I've ever read (in a good way). I picked this book up because it's so small and unassuming, it seemed like a good way to kill an hour; I found myself transfixed throughout. "Green Lights" takes place in a violent, surreal dreamscape, and follows the narrator in his interactions with a variety of people (including an old man who eats children and the moon come to earth). The horror is offset by humour; the narrator's attempt to forge connections with others leaves [...]

Surreal is the word. Green Lights is a surreal adventure on an ordinary street, where the colors are shifting, the sky is uncontainable, interactions with friends and foes are wildly unpredictable. I'd compare this book to one of my all time favorites In Watermelon Sugar, if it was compact, in-flux, packed with danger.
