Product description

Review

A lean-forward experience, and in its most transcendent moments, reading it can feel like having the best conversation of your life.--Rachel Syme

An important and frequently surprising book... could be read as the foundation for a post-avant-garde aesthetics... Nelson, who is also a poet, is such a graceful writer that I...just sat back and enjoyed the show.--Laura Kipnis
