Fiction. A Mockumental Work of the Imagination by J. A. Ellis, resident of Chicagary, Usonia. He is another Billy Pilgrim lost in a time of fascist violence and succession. TAR SPACKLED BANNER is a 21st-century time-traveler's autobiography that recalls Fyodor Dostoevsky's anti-heroic protagonist's raves in Notes from Underground and the curious esoterics of Thomas Carlyle's Sartor Resartus. Ellis takes the reader on a scripto-visual journey into our near future where the Goosestep is even more popular than the Soupyi Shuffle.
