Active 8.75 x 5.5 x 0.6 in | 270 gr 176 pages Coach House Books

A double-lunged bong hit of mid-Eighties post-punk college rock, Gertrude Stein, art films, and the comedic legacy of Laurel and Hardy (including such great standup teams as HD and Ezra Pound, Jesus and Judas, and Steve McCaffery and bpNichol).

Jeff Derksen says: 'If reading is sixty-nining, then dyslexicon satisfies at both ends. Stephen Cain disentangles everyday life into its constituent emotional, intellectual, sexual andcultural parts - people, the city, books, music - only to recombine them into a new set of relations. ... It's a sexy m-f of a book. Put it on your turntables.'

Stephen Cain (b.1970) is the author of dyslexicon (Coach House, 1999) and Torontology (ECW, 2001). His sound poetry can be heard on Carnivocal (Red Deer, 1999) and his concrete poetry has appeared internationally. He lives in Toronto where he is a literary editor at the Queen Street Quarterly and a fiction editor at Insomniac Press.
