About this title:

Synopsis: Unlucky Lucky Tales contains three books of Grandbois's prose poetry: Unlucky Lucky Days, Unlucky Lucky People, and Unlucky Lucky Books. Like Zen koans, these brief pieces playfully short-circuit the brain to bypass normal thought and open the mind to undiscovered worlds of perception. As the human organism responds inexplicably to music, to particular combination of notes of varying pitches and durations and the intervals of silence between them, so too it responds in profound yet ultimately incomprehensible ways to the absurd, twisted language of Grandbois's poetry.

From the Author: This illustrated collection contains a reprint of most of Unlucky Lucky Days plus two new books: Unlucky Lucky People and Unlucky Lucky Books. We chose to put them all together because sections and individual poems contain references to one another as well as other more elusive and intricate intertwinings.

Book Description Texas Tech Press,U.S., United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Fidel Sclavo (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. Inventive, disconcerting, and hilarious, Daniel Grandbois's present-day fables call to mind Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories as readily as they do Italo Calvino's Cosmicomics, Rikki Ducornet's Butcher's Tales, and Woody Allen's most literary writings. Braced on the shoulders of the fabulists, fantasists, flash-fictionists, absurdists, surrealists, and satirists who came before him, Daniel Grandbois dredges up impossible meanings from the mineral and plant kingdoms, as well as the animal, and serves them to us as if they were nothing more fantastic than a plate of eggs and ham.Like Zen koans, these stories playfully short-circuit the brain to bypass normal thought and open the mind to undiscovered worlds of perception. As the human organism responds inexplicably to music, to particular combination of notes of varying pitches and duration's and the intervals of silence between them, so too it responds in profound yet ultimately incomprehensible ways to the absurd, twisted language of Grandbois' poetic prose.
