DescriptionLiterary Nonfiction. African & African American Studies. Art. California Interest. Will Alexander's A CANNIBAL EXPLAINS HIMSELF TO HIMSELF is a collection of essays on topics ranging from Los Angeles, collaborative art, cosmic interventions, psychic fragmentation via ego, and the folly of Aryanism from one of America's foremost avant-garde writers. A CANNIBAL erupts and disrupts trains of thought exploring various contours of the human psyche like a phosphorescent snake, burning from the first Egyptians' rage to the ailment of its modern expression. Alexander's tenor glows with the energy of self-remembering; as we consume thoughts and air and bread, invisible energy also consumes us.
