Black Scat author Alain Arias-Misson is up to his old tricks again.

Tomorrow Friday 23rd at 3:30 pm in front of the Deauville Royale Hotel and across the Beach to the Sea, this BD figure will perform an acid poetic commentary on the fools’ debate right and left about the BURKINI.

We doff our burkinis in his honor!

 DOUG RICE BUNDLE 2

img_0115

Signed, First edition. Das Heilige Buch der Stille is a book in GERMAN, translated from the English by Nicolai Kobus and published by Editions Solitude. The English Description: In The Sacred Book of Silence, Doug Rice explores languages for beauty and for love. Through memoir, philosophical fragments, and poetic breath, the narrator reflects on desire and jouissance and on his life with Mai and with Amber, women who unnerved his own way for being in the world. Stories of Mai’s journey from Vietnam to America mingle with stories of her ancestors and with stories of her present life in a foreign tongue. Memories become fairytales that are then forgotten and remembered later as dreams. Sentences break. Sentences are abandoned. Photographs disappear before they can appear. Amber’s beauty and the narrator’s love for Amber haunt each word, each moment of the narrative. Beneath the appearance of each word is a photograph of a desire that will always remain invisible.

PLUS: a 4×6 photograph of the Akademie Schloss Solitude printed on matte paper.

RAVE!

Praise has been pouring in for the novel HERE LIES MEMORY by Doug Rice. Here’s an excerpt from the latest in ANGEL CITY REVIEW by John Venegas:

“Mr. Rice has accomplished something incredibly difficult and has done so with superlative skill.  He has made the surreal feel real, he has blurred the lines between the macrocosm and the microcosm, and he has somehow managed to contribute to the conversation of trauma and abuse in a manner that is not only unprecedented but which feels entirely necessary.  Here Lies Memory is a fantastic work that will require multiple reads to fully process and will never make you regret picking it up.”
