LIMITED EDITION -- In the finest tradition of William S. Burroughs and Thomas Pynchon, comes a strong American author writing in the great American paranoiac's voice as every page busts forth with a wild and elusive prose that takes the reader on a wild ride where anything becomes a possibility. With The Love Song of J. Edgar Hoover, Charles Talkoff combs the deepest fathoms of a paranoiac's nightmares and brings back with him his vision and homage to the deeper, darker secrets of the human psyche in the post-9/11 world. The Ministry of Ambiance, Fluffy-eared Generals, Special Agent Automatic Turpentine, Katzenberg's Super Atomic Piston Ring, Mr. Jellybean and Agency men all vie for your thoughts. Welcome to a post-9/11 paranoid world that would have had Hoover dancing in his closet. A wild ride through the physics of Katzenberg's Super Atomic Piston Ring - "a machine that would allow the user to tap into conversations anywhere in the world at any moment in time." "Talkoff is . . . a serial killer having his way with the entire body of literature, art, and popular culture." - Jed Birmingham, Author, Editor
