    doing, why they’re doing it, what they’re supposed to be doing instead, and, moreover, how they’re supposed to feel about any of that. Ben Marcus’s collection Notes from the Fog seems to offer readers a variety of these existential crises — the author spreading out the brutal choices like a Vegas dealer fanning out cards — and while no one will really find clear answers to those questions or even much

    Deming continued on page 30 Richard Deming, focus editor. Recently, I had the opportunity to tour the sewers of Vienna, a city I dearly love. Afterwards, numerous people asked me why I would do that, spend time in the grotty underground, given the remarkable beauty of Viennese traditional and modernist architecture? Why wouldn’t I just spend more time taking in, for instance, the grandeur of the Hofburg
