~Double Baloney~ is a compilation of 130 pages of mock-haiku and pseudolimericks, rather baroquely written so that each item is one relatively sweeping 'sentence.' On every page is one mock-haiku plus one psuedolimerick, and the individual items on each page have quite identical titles. A very strong attempt has been made to push the language of the individual pieces toward much grammatical correctness, so that the final verbal effects might seem lapidary if not absolutely epigrammatic. Much entertainment supposedly may be had in terms of noticing how the English language is played with.

About the author (2009)

Bruce Hamilton, a rather solitary Californian, attended Yale College for two years. He assiduously has devoted most of his literary practicing to such basic pieces as limericks and sonnets. His recent "literary hero" was and still is Jorge Luis Borges, toward whose pessimisms about language and literature he remains sympathetic.
