Editorial Reviews

Review

               
"Henry James Korn is one of our very best absurdist writers and Amerikan Krazy has all the best characteristics of Heller's Catch 22, Jack Kerouac at his best like Dr. Sax and Robert Coover's Public Burning."
-Dr. Walter James Miller, Professor of Literature, New York University and host of Reader's Almanac


"Korn's Amerikan Krazy is a zany, hard-charging, and tasty concoction laced with substantial doses of passionate and legitimate rage regarding the maddening features of contemporary American life combining darkness and hilarity in the manner of David Lynch and Tim Burton."
-Dr. Spencer C. Olin, Professor Emeritus, History, University of California, Irvine


"Henry James Korn's novel Amerikan Krazy makes sense out of the absurd conditions of contemporary life. Are prevailing authorities engendering paranoia by manipulating power, spectacle, violence and social status? Does fear assist a disloyal opposition in recovering its sanity? These are among the central questions lurking within this hilarious and hallucinatory post 1984 quest for truth."
-Martha Wilson, artist and Founding Director, Franklin Furnace


"Amerikan Krazy delivers a fearless, wildly creative, and rollicking ride through an absurd yet painfully familiar landscape of American culture from post-WW II to a not-too-distant future. The novel's vibrant historical context features the illusions and disillusions of a PTSD-stricken protagonist who vows to tilt at all available windmills, giving us laugh-out-loud moments as well as those of wincing recognition of our culture's corporate capture.  Fueled by passion and driven by a playful rage, the novel smacks ruling-class bastards right proper."
- Dr. Patricia Hartz, Lecturer and Writing Program Director Emeritus, Department of Humanities, University of California, Irvine
