Synopsis: Zeke Reilly, the protagonist of Deja Vu and the Phone sex Queen, sometimes has visions of future events but he cannot do anything to stop them nor can he make things happen just by envisioning them. The visions merely add another question mark to his life, which seems to careen out of control from one serendipitous event to another: he commits an atrocious act for which he can find no justification and, stranger still, feels no remorse. He goes into hiding, finds himself caught in a hold-up, during which he meets the phone-sex queen. They hide in her apartment for a time, whereupon they fall in love. Zeke's life gets no simpler from that point on, however. Through another series of bizarre events, Zeke has to flee again and is drawn farther and farther south into the ancient lands of the Aztec, Mayan and Toltec Indians-where at last he learns the meaning of his visions. Despite the strangeness of the story, Michael McIrvin's Deja Vu and the Phone Sex Queen is not merely irony or surrealism, but is presented as plausibility in a world which itself often seems absurd: violence without reason, the subsumption of cultures into mass culture, the commercialization of even tragic experience-a milieu in which we, like the protagonist, hope against hope to find purpose and meaning.

About the Author: Michael McIrvin has worked as a telephone installer, liquor store clerk, bouncer, archaeologist, and ranch hand, among many other erstwhile occupations. He taught literature and writing for eight years at the University of Wyoming. He holds a Master of Arts degree from the University of Wyoming. Michael believes the best 2 novels written in the last half of the 20th c. were McCarthy's Blood Meridian and DeLillo's Underworld. He reads lots of poetry, especially Neruda, Garcia Lorca, Vallejo, and Rilke. He enjoys cross-country skiing, hunting, fishing, camping, and gardening. He now lives in Wyoming with his wife, Sharon, and his sons, Jesse and Eli. His essay collection, "Whither American Poetry," was published in 1999, and his fifth poetry collection, "Optimism Blues: Poems Selected and New," will be published in January 2002. He does editing and is presently at work on a novel about the CIA
