Overview

Featuring a world of darkly comic transmutations, wild flights of paranoia, and even the occasional flash of pure bliss, every piece in this volume?whether it’s about an apocalypse at an abandoned drive-in cinema, a runaway shopping mall that seeks refuge in a small boy’s bedroom, a tourist in Central America who finds his fate in a bowl of murky soup, or a man who transforms into a cartoon mouse before a job interview?is both a provocation and an escalation. In pieces like the collection’s centerpiece, the long-poem ?Sitting by the Judas Hole,” the poet continues to challenge our perceptions of everyday banalities. Unique and entertaining, this compelling collection offers a true surrealistic treat.
