“Once, while I was listening to a lecture on dreams, I noticed that the girl in front of me had fallen asleep on her arms. Where was she then? It would be gentle to guess that Franz Kamin is busy exploring the geography of her elsewhere. Yet the force in his work is like that of all the other explorers, whose images become gentle and benign only in hindsight (Audubon, for instance, fleeced Keats’ brother at cards). It is transgressive, impatient of the natives, hasty, not yet polished up for presentation to the Socit’ d’Ailleurs. Here are his travel diaries, still stained with blood and lime squash.” – Robert Kelly

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In what has been called a “post-modern Gothic experimental novel,” Franz Kamin interlaces dream-narrative with death-event vignettes and revelations concerning the composition of the text. He links the scribbling of children, artists and dreamers with the hopes and terrors of obsession and delirium. Through all of this one may almost detect a somber chuckling from the authorial domain. In a Baudelairean sense, Kamin extends the comic to new ranges of the grotesque.
