The first book-length work by this South Carolinian / Southern Californian writer collects songs, essays, poetry, brief prose stories and documents from his unusual epistolary archive. Choate combines close attention to graphic detail – from page design to the evocativity of intentional misspelling – with a heightened focus on the influence of sonic texture over a word’s migration between the page and the person. A wry but contagious humor underlies each piece. Includes “Laser Pointers Put the Demon in Demonstrate.” Accompanying each book is a CD featuring musical renditions and other sonic performances of the work, plus 18 CD-exclusive pieces.
