Poetry. "In the way that Little Nemo never quite reaches his dreamland desires, the team players in Stacy Doris' 'cultural' gudie will never finish their game. They (and we) are suspended in the animated crackle of a postnuclear mythology. Classic texts--Mayan, Tibetan, New Jerseyan--are re-released as videogame. What is the job of an ancient lineage when future acncestries are bound to be bioengineered? Read this book for the stats and scores"--Jena Osman. Stacy Doris' books written in English include Knot, CONFERENCE, PARAMOUR and KILDARE. Written in French are Parliament and, semi-anonymously, LA vie de Chester Steven Wiener ecrite par sa femme, and Une annee a New York avec Chester. He has co-edited three collections of French poetry translated by American poets, and she is an assistant professor of Creative Writing at San Francisco State University.
