Megan Milks, a true gem in the Chicago literary scene, marks a new kind of daring with her chapbook, "Kill Marguerite." The story runs with its variations on a theme and bends them with a retro twist: life in an old school video game. The result is a fresh, entertaining story with a heroine the reader lives and dies with, again and again, while continually forgetting that she is nothing but a pixelated image on a screen, whose volition is tied to the trivial push of an A or B button.
