    These voices in Balestrini’s novels are always one person speaking anonymously as a type. The voices have all the specificity of an individual - a set of attitudes, moods, prejudices, back stories - but they each speak in a way that exemplifies what life was like for a person such as them, in a moment when there were many like them. They are works that capture and illuminate voice. Voices speaking, rather than words written.
