Synopses & Reviews
"Subjects float and mutate, confounding observation and analysis." from "Variations on a Party"
Charles Ullmann has emerged as a one-man fiction and satire wrecking ball, an expatriate looking in from the outside, a mad scientist who shapes words and sentences into stories that are odd, funny, shocking, and new.
"While reading Mr. Ullmann's living strategies and stories, keep in mind the following eastern aesthetic principles: suggestion, irregularity, simplicity, perishability. And once you read through these stories twice, if you think the basic fact of the book contradicts that last one, eat these pages immediately; their unique nutrition is guaranteed, especially for those whose appetites are jaded or sated."
