By David Ives

the realm in keeping with David Ives is a truly upload position, and his performs represent a digital pressure try of the English language -- and of the audience's means for disorientation and pleasure. Ives's characters plunge into black holes known as "Philadelphias," the place the best wishes are hilariously thwarted. Chimps named Milton, fast, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet. And a con guy peddles classes in a doubtful language during which "hello" interprets as "velcro" and "fraud" comes out as "freud."

At as soon as enthralling and complicated, incisively clever and side-splittingly humorous, this unique paperback variation of Ives's performs comprises "Sure Thing," "Words, phrases, Words," "The common Language," "Variations at the loss of life of Trotsky," "The Philadelphia," "Long in the past and much Away," "Foreplay, or The artwork of the Fugue," "Seven Menus," "Mere Mortals," "English Made Simple," "A Singular Kinda Guy," "Speed-the-Play," "Ancient History," and "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread."

From the alternate Paperback edition.
