New novel completed. Bardo jazz, psychic vaudeville, bop odyssey of internal consciousness….
For me it’s always been the novel living within is the possession, the spirits dancing their jig of the dead and living, and the novel written is the prolonged, exacting and necessary excorcism, the inevitable purging and expulsion which feels damned close to the dream-life and bottomless cry of hallelujah. And so … hallelujah. Word to the mother.
