Description

"These thirty-three prose inventions of Christopher Middleton constitute the fourth pillar of an extraordinary literary oeuvre, the other three being his poetry, translations, and literary essays. Whatever one chooses to call these often astonishing miniatures, they are certainly Middleton's wildest, most accessible and entertaining work, and they count as some of his very finest writing." - August Kleinzahler, Foreword
