Fiction. Poetry. Hybrid Genre. "The title is TITLE. What's the title? TITLE. That means the book is the book, or 'A' book, and implies that the book questions itself along the way, or perhaps just makes a lot of leaps, flops, and fade-away hook shots, though all is not in cinders. But life and words manage to burn, and if you burn too, it might be for thirst of knowledge, and you will at least have a chance to quench such thirst if you read this book, if you attempt to understand the nature of a title. You are Odysseus, and you're trying to get home, or toward another goal, and you need a few challenges along the way; or, you'll get them whether you need them or not."—Charles Alexander
