Tom Harris : a novel by Stefan Themerson( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At various times in his life, Tom Harris was a dull schoolboy, an apprentice barber, a delinquent husband, an old man with a monkey who drank at the Green Man Pub, "il professore Harris" at the University of Genoa, and possibly a murderer. The question of who the elusive Tom Harris really is, and what crimes he has really committed, obsesses the narrator of this novel. Tom Harris is an outlandish, highly unconventional detective story, ingeniously plotted in a style reminiscent of Evelyn Waugh and Henry Green at their best."--Jacket

Bayamus : and the theatre of semantic poetry and the life of Cardinal Pölätüo with notes on his writings, his times and his contemporaries : two novels by Stefan Themerson( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bayamus recounts the adventures of a self-proclaimed mutant with three legs (one is attached to a roller skate) and his efforts to propagate a new species; it includes an instructive visit to the "Theatre of Semantic Poetry," where old rhymes mutate into new truths. Cardinal Polatuo is the biography of Guillaume Apollinaire's anonymous father, who turns out to be an ecclesiastic with a murderous interest in modernist poetry, a faith based on science, and a dreamlife so frankly obscene that only a dictionary of Freudian sumbols can explain its innocence"--Page 4 of cover
