Jarry and Me: The Autobiography of Alfred Jarry
Absintheur Press, a Division of Moving Finger Press, Sep 1, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 216 pages
Is this Alfred Jarry finally writing Oakley Hall III's autobiography or the other way around? It reads--magnificently--as both at the same time, thus as another instance of that hidden wisdom: we are never only one, but always the occasion of many.
Maybe it is Ubu himself fondling the hen, I mean holding the pen? Was there ever pathos in Pataphysics?
If not, here it is: one bridge further, Oakley Hall III is at it again, biosplicing his & Jarry s life in the theater and Jarry and his theater in life.
You are hereby introduced into the Hall of Post-Pataphysics.
