Read full description of the books:



The Sleep of Reason plunges us into a macabre world where good impulses bring on evil consequences—a world not unlike our own. In David Gewanter's alternately delightful and startling poems, allegory comes alive and stalks a bookstore's musty aisles, comedians eviscerate their families for a laugh, lovers love each other for withholding affection, and theaters collapse on audiences hungry for spectacle. Amidst such surreal subjects, Gewanter's delicate musicality and keen sense of humor sparkle; his inquisition regarding a fallen world becomes a dark comedy of errors haunted by the most unexpected characters—from JFK Jr. to Tacitus, Redd Foxx to General Motors, Mariah Carey to 100 rabbits with herpes. An offbeat satire for an off-kilter age, The Sleep of Reason offers an incisive guide to moral behavior in an immoral world.

Reviews of the The Sleep of Reason


LEO

Frankly, double

FINLAY

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

BROOKE

A book that completely overturned consciousness

MOHAMMED

It reads on one breath.

LEXI

Rarely do the books make me cry, but this one could.
