Synopses & Reviews

Review:

These hilariously original crazings and sorceries of language and of feeling let us in, at last, on all the secrets we’ve been keeping from ourselves. Prathna Lor is a dazzler. --Gary Lutz

Review:

Somehow objects get Prathna Lor to talk for them. When he was visited by a screen protector, and witchcraft, and Israel, he knew what to make them say, and they knew how to make him say it. Where I live I am visited by many floating images, but none of them are a king lowering himself onto a cock. So I am glad I have V...entriloquism here, and that it talks. — EVELYN HAMPTON author of We Are Eternal and Gigantic

Review:

Lor takes the L from Lutz (Gary) and the L from Lydia (Davis) and adds an either-or of elegantly psychotic desire. Imagine Hannibal Lecter talking to the moon. Imagine a man in a suit petting a whale carcass. Prathna Lor puts his hand up in these voices and makes us remember every way a mouth can move. — MIKE YOUNG author of We Are All Good If They Try Hard Enough
