      I was given this book by my Literature teacher, so I was looking forward to read it. Unfortunately, I didn't understand a lot of the book. The parts I could grasp the meanings of were thoroughly enjoyable, though. Hopefully I'll be able to give this book another go later in the future, & that I'll be able to get more out of it.

      What a wonderful romp through Dadaism, science fiction, and more, by Kon, whom I first read in an anthology.Not quite poetry but snippets of prose, connected, unconnected.Clever, yes. Too clever, I didn't think so though that has been levelled against Kon.
