Celebrated since the 1960s for pushing linguistic boundaries, bill bissett describes this book as “a novel with connekting pomes n essays.” This interweaving of fact and fiction creates a narrative that is redolent with surprise and discovery. Its three-part “fictional” story offers a new and engaging understanding of the human condition that is delightfully accessible only through language.

bill bissett's charged readings, which never fail to amaze his audiences, incorporate sound poetry, chanting, and singing, the verve of which is only matched by his prolific writing career—more than seventy books of bissett's cutting-edge poetry have been published.
