The Dihedrons Gazelle-dihedrals ZoomBook - 2010
Fiction. Poetry. Cross-Genre. Leslie Scalapino's new book of prose, THE DIHEDRONS GAZELLE-DIHEDRALS ZOOM, while a work that stands on its own, is book II as a pair with book I, FLOATS HORSE-FLOATS OR HORSE-FLOWS (Starcherone, 2010), described by Michael McClure as follows: "This is a jewel book that has come out of the spagyric hinterlands of purest imagination, where it has lain for an immeasurable time alongside Burroughs's Cities of the Red Night, Hans Arp's poetry, Monkey's Journey to the West, and Mark Twain's Mysterious Stranger--and it blows with the elegance of a horse--or a wolf...Virginia Woolf!" Lydia Davis commented: "Leslie Scalapino's writing reveals how far language--and therefore thought itself--can go beyond what we are accustomed to, and the forms in which she writes delightfully defy our expectations."
