Belgian Surrealists Infiltrate Plume #4
Hold the phone! Stop the presses! Put down that doughnut! The new issue of the literary annual Plume has arrived, with a list of contributors too diverse and distinguished to be believed.
Included in the issue are some translations I made, with Jean-Luc Garneau, of those inimitable oddballs, the Piqueray twins (Gabriel and Marcel). Belgian Surrealists of the midcentury, their work continues to defy all known aesthetic categories.
Plume 4 can be ordered at the usual places, or via the publisher's website, and should be on display at the Los Angeles A.W.P. convention, for those of you with the courage to approach that throbbing center of literary networking.
