by George Myers, Jr.
ISBN 0-931181- 01-1 (1981/2nd edition 1985)
A collection of Myers' collages and experimental short fictions. A few embarrassing typos (mea culpa) but still a dynamite collection of work by one of the unsung talents of the 80's, and one that hasn't written much outside of mainstream reporting in more than a decade. The second edition added a foreword.
"Myers, with his sometimes discordant, sometimes, mellifluous syntax, revises the notions of our history, of the words that are used to represent things, of memories, dreams and images." --Washington Review
"Recommended." --American Book Review
--The Review of Contemporary Fiction
"Absurdism at its best." --Krax
" . . . full of charm and experiment . . . a successful example
of book art, experimental short prose, and, most important, as an expression
of, vision, feeling and wit.."
"Is he moving toward a technique that mocks the rest of us, the Artaud-voice speaking its madnesses with all the solemnity of the Encyclopedia B.?" --Pulpsmith
"It's belletristic as all get out--but with pretensions at poetry
swept away, it comes across fast and sharp and beautiful." --Columbia
