Product Description

"Superhero philosophers and monsters made of math. Epistemology, logic, and the limits of language; meaninglessness, irony and hope. This is deeply serious, and very funny, stuff." —NICOLE KRAUSS, author of The History of Love
"If you haven't yet met Eugene Ostashevsky's alter ego, that New Philosopher DJ Spinoza, you have a delightful treat in store. These multi-layered lyric/narrative poems are zany, profound, hilarious, imaginative, and technically brilliant (what with their rhyming, echolalia, sound play). Ostashevsky is the true heir, not only of the Oberiu poets whom he has translated so brilliantly, but also of Gogol. He understands that today it is more imperative than ever to know 'how to tell the truth / and why.'" —MARJORIE PERLOFF, author of 21st Century Modernisms

"The Life and Opinions of DJ Spinoza is a lovable little book." —BOOKSLUT

"You're not going to find too many poetry collections that are this action-packed." —CATHY PARK HONG at The Poetry Foundation
