Product description

Review

“A vastly imagined Wonderbook—fearsome, hilarious, familiar and arcane—in which a brilliantly savaged Walmart, both a temple and a tomb, spawns an epidemic of pharonic proportions, exhausting nothing less than everything. An extraordinary experience.” Rikki Ducornet, National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, author of Brightfellow and The Deep Zoo

 

“In a series of librettos for the end times, a compilation of nearly operatic extent, Lucy Biederman’s stage in The Walmart Book of the Dead is the size of the world’s biggest box-store wherein miles of product attempt to dwarf the lonely figures who journey through its forsaken aisles like refugees from a Denis Johnson fever dream singing their apologetics and choking confusions, insincerities and blunt wonderments, songs of tedium, choking confessions, proprieties of the herd, and much more, arias rising to honor the supremely banal pathos of contemporary post-existence, each song haunting, brief, yet interwoven into a collective performance of current afterlife, funereal yet bright beyond vision. An homage to capitalism.” Skip Fox, author of wired to zone and Sheer Indefinite
