John Hawkes - Death, Sleep, and the Traveler - Book Review
- Published on Jan 29, 2016
- Death, Sleep, and the Traveler - mid career work by John Hawkes, author of The Cannibal, The Lime Twig, Second Skin, and a stack of other ultramodern / postmodern novels. This book concerns a detached Dutchman tangled up in various ménages à trois. Here I examine Hawkes’ “postmodern”ness, the torturous pleasures of his world, and affinity to artists like Cassavetes and Robbe-Grillet. This here work is one to savor!
