The Body Artist media
bandwagon continues to build momentum. Listing for a piece
in the Village Voice.
(Nov 3, 2000)
Body Artist media
bandwagon has started rolling. First onboard is Speak
magazine, with the piece "Smells like Don DeLillo" by
Lardas in Fall 2000 issue #20. Some memorable lines: "I
a humble apprentice. I have absorbed an digested Don DeLillo whole.
I am the fungus that lurks invisibly between his toes." Though
he doesn't come out and say it, I suspect Mr. Lardas has been
a visitor here more than once...
Also noted the DeLillo blurb
on the latest novel by Joy Williams, The Quick and the Dead.
"Joy Williams has produced a hard, sharp, comic novel about
the off-kilter genius of adolescence - a work of marverick insight
and rash and beautiful bursts of language."
