Frequently Bought Together
In the beginning, we were children and we had beautiful imaginations, but we had no home for them. Then up sprouted Mathias Svalina s Destruction Myth and we did. It too was beautiful, bloody, silly, haunted. At first we thought it was godly, and then we discovered it was human. We feared it; we loved it; we slept with it under our pillows. --Eleni Sikelianos
If I feel physically as if the top of my head is taken off and replaced with a soft serve ice cream machine, I am pretty sure it is poetry. Svalina s book does no less, and also so much more. Read but also believe this book of fantastic lies. It s like how you see a cat sitting there and you think that is just a cat and then you realize that cat is God. Mathias Svalina has reinvented Yahweh as an Animorph. When this book is taught in college classrooms, students will curl up on the air conditioning vents and ask for salt. --Anne Boyer
