5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful tribute to the genius of R.A. Lafferty 12 maggio 2015
Di Delacroix - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
As fine as the first volume of this ongoing series designed to celebrate the life and works of one of the most unjustly obscure literary genius of American literature was, the folks at Ktistec Press have kicked it up another notch. With this second issue. From the beautiful painted front cover, through the newly revamped typography, and all new interior design, Feast of Laughter is an inspiring piece of book production.

But it is the truly amazing range and depth of the contributions in this second issue which is most noteworthy. Feast of Laughter vol. 2 begins with a section devoted to new and original pieces of Lafferty scholarship, ranging from personal memoirs from those who knew Lafferty, such as “Working With Ray: My Experiences with R.A. Lafferty” by Greg Ketter, to in-depth analyses of various works, such as John Ellison’s impressive “Exploring Themes From Catholic Theology in Two Short Stories by R. A. Lafferty.” But this is only the beginning of the further riches awaiting you inside, which include segments on international Lafferty fandom in such far-flung regions as Japan and Russia, not to mention the extensive number of Lafferty reviews and interviews that follow, and capped off by concluding sections highlighting young contemporary writers, artist, poets, and composers inspired by Lafferty’s work.

If you are a long-time lover of Lafferty’s unique language and vision, or you’re just someone looking to get acquainted with Lafferty’s oeuvre for the first time, this is a perfect publication for you. Highly recommended!

5.0 su 5 stelle Continued from last rock 3 giugno 2015
Di Gord Wilson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
When I saw this title on Amazon, I said, hold on, there's already a Lafferty book called East of Laughter. Some rogues have almost taken the title. Then I saw it came from Ktistec Press, and I said, hold on, the subtitle of Arrive at Easterwine is "The Autobiography of a Ktistec Machine". Something is afoot here. This must be more of the little seen, little known Lafferty, and I was avid to track it down. Why would I do so? Because the first book by R.A. Lafferty I read was Arrive at Easterwine, and then I fell into the short stories. I read "Rainbird" over and over trying to find a way to make it end differently, as if there were some loophole, and one just had to find it. The more stories I read, it seemed there were loopholes all over Lafferty's universe(s), but they were easy to miss. Since then I found his amazing novels, my favorites being Fourth Mansions, Past Master, and Annals of Klepsis. I ordered this and the first volume of Feast of Laughter, but it turned out they are not lost Lafferty writings.

What they are, however, is the next best thing: writings about Lafferty (Lafferty criticism is also very rare). A number of things are also rare about this book. One, that it's a book. A paperback with a beautiful color cover, that I'm holding, and that runs to around 290 pages. Volume One clocks in at 240 pages. Volume One was/ is a Centenary, a 100 year celebration of the author.
Now the madness is all out of hand, and here's Volume Two. V2 is already better, however, because the contents also tell you what sort of shred you're reading. Essay? Poetry? Story by Lafferty? (yes, each volume has a story by R.A.L.), story inspired by Lafferty? and like that. That's actually there in V1, as well, but at the end of the book, as if you have to go through all the treasure before you find the map Feast of Laughter 1: Issue 1 (Volume 1).

Lots of people would be fine reading these pieces, or this book ( this collection of these pieces) online or jumping blog to blog like a frog in a bog. Not me though, I only read physical books, so I'm glad these are one (or two and counting). I always wonder about the unread Lafferty (unread by me) and how to read it, and which stories or books go together (if any). There's a quite decent bit in here about More Than Melchisedech in that regard. I also wondered if anyone would address Lafferty's Catholicism. Once again, a couple essays answer my big question mark. I also wondered if anyone besides me would sneak Lafferty in as a character in a novel in a slyly unrecognizable form. No wait, I still wonder that.

If you don't know who Lafferty is, his short stories or one of the above novels would be a better place to make his acquaintance (though each of these two volumes does contain a Lafferty short story). But if you're starving for more about Lafferty, welcome to the feast.
