Fiction. LGBT Studies. Art. Eric M. Suzanne's RIDING SIDESADDLE* (SpringGun Press, 2015) is a work on 250 interchangeable index cards that explores the construction of narrative and the authority of the novel form. Here, a narrator navigates a host of recurring characters with fluid genders and bodies that resist order, category and completion. They re-mythologize figures such as Margaret Clap and Hermaphroditus as well as themselves. SIDESADDLE* opens up the world as its characters clash against and are turned away from it.
Eric M. Suzanne creates web software with OddBird, soundscapes with Teacup Gorilla, wordscapes with [WriteyWrite], and performance art with Vicious Trap or the Denver Poets' Theatre. Formerly Artistic Director of New World Arts & Technical Director of The LIDA Project, Eric is the author of RIDING SIDESADDLE* (SpringGun Press, 2015), and The Post-Obsolete Book.
