    Abraham: A Novel


    “Charles Olson said that if he ever wrote about the American Civil War, he’d inscribe what he wrote to Frank O Hara. Sparrow’s Abraham does the opposite: it is the book that Frank O Hara would have written about the American Civil War if he’d lived upstate, attuned to the materiality of everyday life, listening to the ghosts hiding in books found in small town libraries and yard sales, and the clamor of history discovered in a parking lot in Boiceville, NY, while waiting for a ride home.’ Marcus Boon, author of In Praise of Copying

    “As the Civil War continues to play out in U.S. politics, what better time to delve into the life of the leader who brought us through the bloodiest version of our national strife? Sparrow converts his obsession with Lincoln into a deeply personal excavation of what we know and don t know and should know about our iconic president.”...

  • Pareidolia

    Price: $14.00

    Carl Watson

    “Pareidolia’s field of play is that of the questions behind the questions. Granted, as Watson suggests, a determinist science has proved humans are basically simple machines, rotors, churning a mix of DNA & biological chemicals. And granted a determinist outside of persuasive ads, sellthrough thoughts & FB solicitations have configured people into simple, will-free consumption buckets. Watson poses this question: Not only is there but has there even been a human life? And if there has been how could it survive under this determinist assault? The answer unrolls in querulous, curious infernos of seductive lyrics. Referencing (and poking) Stevens, Hopkins, Eliot & Baudelaire, these poems (like those of the last master mentioned) offer the reader the excitement & ecstasy of a sponge bath of blood in the basement of the famed Heartbreak Motor Lodge.” — Jim Feast
    “Talking of pareidolia, Leonardo Da Vinci said, If you stare at the stained wall long enough, you see an infinite number of unimaginable things....

  • Long Day, Counting Tomorrow

    Price: $14.95

    Jim Feast, with Carol Wierzbicki

    Rasken Hasp is dying of AIDS, given only a few months to live. Then someone tries to kill him.

    “Raskin Hasp, the paranoiac, dourly funny, HIV-positive hero of Jim Feast s nonlinear trip of a novel, goes down the rabbit hole in order to avenge a fellow patient s suspicious death and, in the bargain, save himself. Finding humor amidst life-threatening illness is never easy, but Feast pulls it off. Like a bombshell hitting a major chord (to use one of Feast s own gleefully mixed metaphors), Long Day, Counting Tomorrow is a loopy, vinegary, but ultimately and unexpectedly solemn tale of narcissists and wisecrackers, junkies and AIDS activists, trying to make sense of an epidemic that has always been a matter of politics and prejudice as much as viral counts and body fluids.” — Patrick E. Horrigan, author of Portraits at an Exhibition.

    Peter Lamborn Wilson

    Do you hate short stories but love tales? Like Tales of Hoffman, Lord Dunsany, Borges, Isak Dinesen, Calvino, Jack Vance’s Dying Earth, Leonora Carrington, Theodore Sturgeon, Angela Carter, L. Frank Baum…? Then… maybe you’ll like these. Take them to the beach!

    “Sometimes when the world gets overwhelmingly hostile, you find yourself in need of the drug called Utopia. You’ll want to gather round, then, as Peter Lamborn Wilson hitches his mule, takes down his saddle bags, and unrolls five tales of time, space and beguiling societies rich in adventure, dreams and food, and low in laws and machines.” — Luc Sante, author of The Other Paris
