About this title

Synopsis:

In the Realms of the Unreal: "Insane" Writings Edited by John G. H. Oakes. Foreword by Kurt Vonnegut. "This is what poetic expression is all about."-Library Journal. "Demanding but mind-expanding reading."-Publishers Weekly ISBN 0-941423-57-3

Review:

In the introduction to this startling collection of "insane writings," Kurt Vonnegut makes the point that " creative people have thoughts unlike those of the general population." He adds that talent in writing must accompany those thoughts, as they do in these brilliant poems, essays, and stories by unique individuals who have been "culled" by society and who exist in institutions or under the label of "insane." From wordplay such as that of the Language poets to speculation on the meaning of life and chance, expression of alternative visions by previously unheard and unpublished writers makes the collection mind-expanding and very real.
