Poetry. 9 UNDERWOR(L)D 0, the final installment of William James Austin's Underwor(l)d series, is a magnificent production with unforgettable characters who embody the poetic instruments of a vacuous postmodern sophistication. WJA's is a grotesquely cynical world of sterilized emotions where language is being destroyed by technocrats, and whole culture has been taken over by charlatans. Part nine, "Desolation Paradise," is an odyssey of humor and despair through the underground of New York City, culminating in art's ultimate experience through death.
William James Austin lives in New York City and remains addicted to its dystopian landscape. To date he has authored five collections of poetry, essays, and "photopo." Austin has worked as a musician and song writer in the worlds of jazz and rock music and teaches at the State University of New York.Author City: New York, NY USA
