DescriptionThe surreal, confessional, stream-of-consciousness stanzas of Joseph D. Reich's 300-page, lyrical epic poem How to Shoot a Tourist (With a Bow & Arrow) in a Hot-Air Balloon run up and down the page in a desperate, fantastical rage, hypnotically interrupted by a recurring refrain from which they emerge and depart on wildly varied journeys: probing the nature, origins and psychological derivation of surrealism, looking at persistent pain within and damage and devastation without in richly "ridiculous" images that are not only surreal but satirical and questioning, while also the best answer to the idiosyncratic machinations of authority. How to Shoot a Tourist is an exhaustive mythic encyclopedia of America and of Reich's teeming inner world.
