Author Brion Poloncic will be signing copies of his book, Xanthous Mermaid Mechanics at A Novel Idea Bookstore in downtown Lincoln from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm on Sunday, July 29th.
Eckhard Gerdes, author of Hugh Moore and My Landlady the Lobotomist says, “Poloncic’s novel pushes at our preconceptions about art and self. Outsider Art has become somewhat of a commodity with so-called ‘outsiders’ who seem to market their ‘outsidedness’ for monetary gain. One wonders if in some cases the outsider stance isn't merely a con. But with Poloncic, we see the real thing, and it is beautiful and scary, marvelous and delightful. The book is edgy and angry – but also very funny. At one point, Poloncic, in the depths of his artistic quest, begins channeling William S. Burroughs, who dictates a manuscript to him. Xanthous Mermaid Mechanics is both charming and discombobulating - and rings absolutely true to the ear.”
Xanthous Mermaid Mechanics is published by The Journal of Experimental Fiction. Trade paperbacks are $15 each. To reserve copies, call A Novel Idea Bookstore at (402) 475-8663.
