"I have trod and will retread this confirming and inquiring work time and again. It's strangely home. Epic in scope. As mighty on the page as on the stage, with scat and logic, this MacDuff leads us on."
J.C. Menu, French publisher, L' Association
"This book is not a book, it's an alien."
Bob Holman, Bowery Poetry Club
"Thomas refuses to call the pieces in this book poetry, says they are not the songs. I really don't care what you call them, and it's true that they are unlike anything you've ever read before, but what they are are zings, stings, word bullets that tell stories so condensed that your mind changes on every syllable."
The Book of Hieroglyphs
The Book of Hieroglyphs by David Thomas goes on sale to readers of ubuprojex.net on Friday, June 8 in its hardback edition. The official launch is scheduled for September, when a paperback edition will also be available. The hardback is a limited edition, 268 pages with a color dust jacket.
Bob Holman (Bowery Poetry Club) reports, "I'm having the pleasure of previewing David (Pere Ubu) Thomas' book of nonpoems called The Book of Hieroglyphs. Thomas refuses to call the pieces in this book poetry, says they are not the songs. I really don't care what you call them, and it's true that they are unlike anything you've ever read before, but what they are are zings, stings, word bullets that tell stories so condensed that your mind changes on every syllable."
Allen, Robert and the EML
Allen Ravenstine and Robert Wheeler are interviewed and play the EML together in this video, Dream Of Wires, produced by Bill Blakeney. Recorded at Grant Avenue studio in Hamilton, Ontario. A must-see.
