About this title


These text are territories, dark forests, places to dwell. Sheets of language superimpose and recurrent words and images begin to fall upon one another like the bricks or sticks of an imagined palace waiting to be explored. Where is this palace? Somewhere on an island between San Francisco, California and Medellin, Columbia. This palace is empty, the builder has left. But one can hear a melody drifting down its halls.

If you have a little time, if you are one of the readership's unabashed children, take up your flashlight and enter this attempt to whistle things as they are, simultaneous and spiraling, full of leaves and laughter, women walking doodles in the morning, confusion as fusion considered, and the breeze that lifts us up into the trees.

About the Author:

George Angel was born of Colombian parents in San Francisco California in 1964. He spent his first thirty years in and around San Francisco and Santa Cruz California. He studied at the University of California and in 1991 received a Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University.
