Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's a strange soup of kink, humor and slander for ya! As John Clark, editor of the great Indiana litzine pLopLop, says: "If Andy Kaufman devoted his life to poetry instead of comedy, the result would closely resemble the twists and surprises of Kevin Sampsell's writing." See what everyone is talking about in the pornographic stores — buy this book!

Review:

"What's at stake in Kevin Sampsell's writing is language and its close proximity to the cusp of danger — too close to bodies, violence, deviance, pleasure, excess....Remember when reading undid you? Sampsell asks us — half nostalgically and half with fierce vengeance — to read again." Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Her Other Mouths and editor of two girls review

Review:

"If Andy Kaufman had devoted his life to poetry instead of comedy, the result would closely resemble the twists and surprises of Kevin Sampsell's writing. One is never quite sure if Sampsell is serious or joking — is he for real or surreal? Thankfully, we aren't forced to decide because Sampsell's work transcends categories, labels, and movements. Plus there's always the delight in wondering 'What'll he come up with next time?'" John L. Clark, pLopLop magazine

Review:

"By submitting to the long sought mutilations of master poets, adhering to the documentation and organization of virgin thoughts in the form of percentages, and revealing a confused obsession directed towardly elderly women, Sampsell's work has introduced the side of his self that has always been young to the side that will always be old. A nuclear explosion of the mind, imagination, and identity that leaves nothing behind but the urge to laugh." Brandon Freels, author of Who the Hell is Brandon Freels?
