Decapitated hands, marrow-coloured goo, serial killing Dr Zhivago fanatics and double-sided dildos make their mark on The Empty Page: Fiction inspired by Sonic Youth. Reddy K is chasing up fresh spiral from the big tube... Ulla Shooks is testifying, countering the wicked with the godly, Michael Chambers is enjoying an empty restaurant for what may be the last time, and Sue Carlyle is buying a penis. And that's just the tip of an ugly and decidedly surreal iceberg.

Review: The Empty Page

User Review  - Jesse - Goodreads

These short stories inspired by Sonic Youth songs were all pretty enjoyable, and I like the concept, though nothing blew me out of the water. I dug Tom McCarthy's "Kool Thing," about Patty Hearst. Other stuff was alright. Read full review
