free download Pricksongs Descants Fictions review Pricksongs Descants Fictions Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB Pricksongs Descants originally published in 1969 is a virtuoso performance that established its author already a William Faulkner Award winner for his first novel as a writer of enduring power and unuestionable brilliance a promise he has fulfilled over a stellar career It also began Coover's now trademark riffs on fairy tales and bedtime. One of the milestones or pilestones in self reflexive fiction the influence of Pricksongs Descants among the subseuent two generations of humorous imps genrebenders and transgressive egomaniacs in experimental prose fiction is plain to see Metafantastical fables reworkings of reworkings forking paths and fucking piths numerical mini chapters self regarding scoundrels for narrators black humour mindless surrealism incomprehensible but entertaining indulgences sneaky s o c shock fodder minxish moralising these are the realm of Coover whose exuberance relentlessness inventiveness comic spirit is unflushable and whose tireless endless exhausting books and stories keep coming like a waterfall of perverted warpedness Among my personal pleasures the Seven Exemplary Fictions in homage to Cervantes the stomach plummeting weirdness of The Elevator the carnival craziness of Romance of the Thin Man and the Fat Lady and the comedy of A Pedestrian Accident The other stories in here were too Cooverian in their oddity tedious incoherent or simply unfunny
