I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Non-linear, fragmented, fictive, consumed by the mechanism of the human body and the unusual power of dream logic, interspersed with abstract photography, I thought this was a compelling, prismatic examination of an artist's inner consciousness. A splaying of obsessions, rendered in pictures and lyrical prose. Swensen's translation is fluid and inventive. I highly recommend it.
