Description

A modern and radical work composed of discrete units of text designed to evoke a scale of notes of emotion from the reader, Unfictions is an extended work of lyrical necessity -- both a CAT-scan of our common society in the fin-de-millenaire period and a socio-aesthetic prophecy. Poetry, prose, fiction, nonfiction, autobiography, history, theology, literary criticism, political critique, polemic, pornography -- Unfictions unerringly dramatizes the way that we react to the information-rich environment of today in all of its glorious simultaneity. It is the beginning of a New Realism in contemporary letters -- one that faithfully reflects a culture so supersaturated with events, quotations and copies of copies that it can no longer distinguish between categories and their increasingly relative meanings.
