THE STORY OF BO^TH

FIRST BOOK IN THE WILD WRITER SERIES, AS RAW AND REFINED AS ANY FIRST NOVEL SHOULD BE, A CUT UP STORY OF A FRAGMENTED LIFE, DEALING WITH THE INSTINCTIVE NATURE OF GRACIOUS SURVIVAL IN A CALEIDOSCOPIC UNIVERSE WHERE BOOKS TALK AND BOATS WHISPER, AND PEOPLE ARE DEFINED BY THEIR HOLES AND WHOLENESS …. A CAPRICIOUS BOOK OF LUST AND REASON, WHERE THE LINES BETWEEN WORLDS ARE DRAWN ON A DELIRIOUS AND DREAMY SAILOR’S MAP, LOST SOMEWHERE IN THE COLOURFUL YET SCARY DEPTHS OF MINDSPACE….

THIS KIND OF WRITING IS OFTEN REFERRED TO AS TYPICAL BEAT GENERATION, MID LAST CENTURY, BUT ACTUALLY WE SEEN A FORM OF STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS APPEAR IN THE EIGHTTEENTH CENTURY USAGE OF TECHNIQUES FOR SO CALLED “AUTOMATIC WRITING”, WHERE THE AUTHOR WOULD WILLFULLY REGARD HER/HIMSELF AS A MERE CONDUIT FOR THE STARS, THE MUZES AND PROPHETS FROM BEYOND, THE DEMONS AND DAEMONS FROM OTHER SPHERES THAT WERE MEANT TO FEED THE MIND AND STEER THE PEN TO DELIVER A PIECE OF WRITING THAT WAS PURE AND UNFETTERED BY MENTAL PREMEDITATED CONSTRUCTS OR CENSORING THOUGHTPATTERNS, STRAIGHT FROM THE NATURAL DIVINE …

THROUGHOUT THE EXPERIMENTAL EARLY DECADES OF LAST CENTURY, CUT UP TEXTS AND FREEFLOWING MEANDERING WRITING BECAME PART OF LITERARY TRADITION IN WRITERS AS ANAIS NIN, WHOSE DREAMLIKE DESCRIPTIONS READ LIKE SURREALIST TRAVELS THROUGH MIND AND MATTER SIMULTANEOUSLY, AND IN DADAIST WORKS, WHERE CUTTING UP TEXTS AND REALIGNING THEM SERVED AS METAPHORES FOR THE WAY THE WORLDS AND MINDS OF MEN AND NATIONS WERE BEING CUT UP AND SEEMINGLY RANDOMLY REORDERED BY THE EVOLUTIONS OF THE DAY AND THE REVOLUTIONS OF THE NIGHT…. THEN IN THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES WE FIND THE FULL STIRRING MIX OF ART AND REALITIES, MADNESS AND MEDICINE, CRAVING AND GOURGING ON THE REMNANTS OF CULTURES RIPPED TO PIECES IN THE CONSECUTIVE WARS THAT SHAPED THE CENTURY, IN THE RICH BEGGARS CLASSED AS THE BEAT GENERATION POETS AND WRITERS, WHERE SANITY WAS FROWNED UPON AS HIGHLY CUMBERSOME AN AFFLICTION AND A SANDWICH IS CONSIDERED AS LETHAL A DRUG AS A WHISKEYDIET, AN ALL-IS-GOOD-PROVIDED-WE-CAN-WRITE-ABOUT-IT FIST IN THE AIR AND STRAIGHT UP THE ARSE OF THE ESTABLISHMENT ATTITUDE THAT CAME WITH THE EXCEPTANCE OF GETTING INTO STRANGE SHIT ON A REGULAR BASIS. AFTER ALL, THE RISK OF MOONING THE WORLD IS GETTING BUTTFUCKED BY THE MAN, BUT IF YOU DON’T, YOU’LL BE CRAPPING YOUR PANTS ANYWAYS…

SO “THE STORY OF BOTH” TAKES YOU ON A TRIP, STARTING ON A STORMY NIGHT IN A PRIMAL WOOD SOMEWHERE, WHERE A SCREAMING MAN IS RAGING AND RUNNING THROUGH THE WOODS, SLIPPING AND SLIDING, CUT AND COVERED IN BLOOD AND SHITKNOWS WHATELSE…. IS HE DELUSIONAL? IS HE DYING, CRYING, AFRAID OR FIGHTING,…. OR WAY BEYOND, SINCE WAY BEFORE, THESE WORDS DEFINITIONS AND CONCEPTS BECAME HOW WE DESCRIBED OUR MINDPROCESSES AND FEELINGS,… AND WHERE DID HE GO, WHILE THEY CAME INTO BEING

FROM HOW NOT TO GO SAILING TO HOW GREAT STONE-AGE SEX COULD BE, FROM THE INTIMACY BETWEEN A BOOK AND IT’S READER TO THE METAPHYSICAL PERSPECTIVE ON BEING HALFWAY WRITTEN, THIS BOOK SPEAKS A LANGUAGE OF NEWFOUND CREATIVITY ON A VERBAL MENTAL, EMOTIONAL AND IMAGINATIVE SCALE THAT SOUNDS LIKE NEVER BEFORE, AND FEELS EVERYTHING LIKE TOMORROW
