Summary

An irreverent and lucid sojourn through the facetious, twisted burps we call sophisticated society, captured by the camera-quick and ruthless eye of the ever-vigilant third person, Madame Realism. Each fiction has a terse analytical agenda, surgically dissecting the mundane, forcing quotidian life off the canvas, out of the museum dioramas and into our laps.

  • If you have up till now missed Tillman's delicious assaults on the way our expectations of narrative, art, public space, and love itself pre-inform our reactions to what we see, watch, and read, prepare to have your mind blown.
