Louis ARMAND will be reading from his recent Prague magnum opus, THE COMBINATIONS, praised by Richard Marshall as “an important and corrosive novel, which is a commitment to creativity in the face of absurdity, a politics of avant garde literary concentration and experience” and as “a ‘great novel’ — long and complex […] exemplifying remarkably the possibilities of the genre and contradicts the contemporary obsession with its decline and commodification” by Jean Bessiere. https://equuspress.wordpress.com/the-combinations/
Richard MAKIN will read from MOURNING, the final part of his trilogy (begun with WORK & DWELLING), described by David Caddy as “an extraordinary and distinct achievement. It is a demanding and enriching read characterized by highly wrought sentences, which cover a range of discourses and fictional events.” In the words of Iain Sinclair, “The writing is that it is. This is prose you must learn to experience before you begin to interpret […] the pages in their beautiful and delirious abstraction are ordered poetry.” https://equuspress.wordpress.com/mourning/
Readings & authors introduced by David VICHNAR.
