What do you see in the dark? Well, that partly depends on your perspective. In Munozâ€™s stylistic mise-en-scÃ¨ne novel, the second-person point of view frames the watchful eye and disguises the wary teller. Reading this story is like peering through Hitchcockâ€™s lensâ€”the camera as observerâ€™s tool and observer as camera–with light and shadow and space concentrated and dispersed frame by frame, sentence by sentence.
