Montagu O’Reilly

Introduced by James Laughlin.
ISBN 0 947757 18 X
54pp 21.5 x 15cm
out of print

This collection contains most of the extraordinary stories of the American surrealist Montagu O’Reilly. A lifelong friend of the great artist, Joseph Cornell, their works share many characteristics. Both are at once nostalgic yet modern - highly wrought distillations which revolve around fantastic, obsessional events.

These PROUSTIAN-LENINIST fictions originally appeared in magazines such as transition, View and New Directions. Their seemless blend of surrealism and the fin-de-siecle is quite unique.
