About this product
- DescriptionIn this adventurous new collection of short fiction, you will encounter Blackie and Tyler, charting their perilous journey through domestic life; Tommy Joe, the manic Texan robber baron, and Lorne, his bewildered Canadian accomplice; the puzzling inhabitants of the Swiftean QueAng-QueAng; and the strangely wise Shultz and his seafaring mates. But the book is more than just a set of unusual tales. Robert Rawdon Wilson sets out to undermine our understanding of boundaries, from the more solid ones of nationality and the body, to the more fictitious limits of selfhood and identity. Through their transgressive behaviour, Wilson's characters experience the pain and joy of cutting across the limits of our expectations and presumptions. With its Borgesian flavour and sardonic wit, Boundaries, and Other Fictions eludes, surprises and plays games at every turn, but never fails to entertain.
