What would our post-9/11 society look like if it were viewed through a series of funhouse mirrors?" "Each of Stephen-Paul Martin's stories is a response to this question, a prose exploration that redefines what it means to write fiction in a world in which the Sistine Chapel has become the Mall of America. Nightmarish at times, playfully amusing at others, Martin's prose is relentlessly inventive and challenging, relocating the experimental tradition of Joyce, Kafka, Borges, and Marquez to a contemporary context in which intelligent communication has become both impossible and increasingly necessary."--Jacket." ;
