Publisher Comments:

Fiction. THE HOUR SETS is a field notebook of sorts comprised of a tidy sequence of observational fictions, with accompanying images by Derek White. From the beginning: "They are called the Hour Sets, and divided into hours, not because each cultural period lasts only an hour, but 1 hour is how long you must study the symbols of each cultural period in order to learn everything about it. The remaining 12 hours of each day are spent forgetting what you have learned about each cultural period, in the order you have learned it, by engaging only the symbols of your own cultural period. This is called sleep. In this way, all of history is learned and unlearned each day. All of history, our history, takes place on a restricted landscape, the same landscape we learn and unlearn upon..."

Description:

The Hour Sets is a field notebook of sorts comprised of a tidy sequence of observational fictions by Michael C. Boyko.
