From Someone Who Hasn't Actually Read it, But Knows it's Amazing,
This review is from: Head in Flames (Paperback)
I haven't read this book yet, but I attended a Lance Olsen reading in which he read and performed a few pieces from Head in Flames. I couldn't believe what I was experiencing. His work is funny and intense; weeks and months after his reading I still find myself thinking about his work, particularly the Van Gogh piece, which made the hairs on my neck rise and tingle. He additionally read a piece about Facebook. I know. At the time I thought, How is he going to pull this off? And then I was stunned. It was incredibly funny, and then in the end it resonated with profundity. I hope to capture just 25% of that in my own work. I want this book, and I want it now.
