Happy Ending: Selected Writings of Mike Topp Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mike Topp has been a longtime favorite in the world of adventurous literary magazines and web sites. His short work blurs the lines of poetry, fiction, memoir, and disjointed logic. This 52-page mini-book includes some of Topp's best-loved work.

Review:

"Mike Topp's irreducible art consists partly of recycling expandable parts of speech and revealing their unused genius. Other parts are fixed, like the sly orthography. Topp is the Andy Warhol and Ralph Nader of literature." Andrei Codrescu

Review:

"Like, I don't know lots — but Topp's is tops." Robert Creeley

Review:

"I'm sorry, Mike, you know I love your work, but I'm just not whoring myself out for anyone else's jacket copy anymore." Jonathan Lethem

Review:

"Mike Topp is a disablingly funny writer — a miniaturist of nervous precisions, our supreme abridger of metropolitan startlement and inner fidgetry. He dazes and graces us." Gary Lutz

Review:

"Mike Topp adds his own slant to the asphalt jungle by turning the landscape of the city upside down until the truth falls out." Hal Sirowitz

Review:

"Constantly mistaken for an Italian underwear model or a beerhall humorist, Mike Topp is, in fact, one of the most gifted Surrealizing writers, and a Taoist immortal." Sparrow

Review:

"Mike Topp is a pithy and poignant pornographer, a bouncy bard, a Jack-out-of-the-box. His writings are silver Slinkies climbing UP the stairs." Denise Duhamel

About the Author

Mike Topp is an aristocrat rebel whose high-spirited life has captured the imagination of Europe. He attended Harrow and Cambridge, where he was a good student and a great athlete. A deformed foot has only increased his determination to excel.
