Queneau, Oulipo, Kool Keith, and Monica Bellucci

My latest pub: A combination book review/critical essay for Cleveland Review of Books on New Directions’ reissue of Raymond Queneau’s classic “The Blue Flowers.” It touches on a wide range of subjects: the history of the Oulipo movement; the chance operations of John Cage and Philip K. Dick; Lars Von Trier’s “5 Obstructions”; Kool Keith; and even smuggles in a bit of “Twin Peaks” for good measure.
