About the Book

The Pale White Neck of Ecstasy This book is a journey through a landscape with various women, mixing the surreal world with fascinating and infuriating details of these creatures and the irrationality of love and lust. The Monkey’s Funeral The world is filled with the bizarre and the magical, the mundane and the ordinary. This book wanders poetically through a mixture of common and irrationally beautiful thoughts, experiences and observations. In the first story, I imagine men having a funeral for a monkey... A Marine Band Marches through Her Hollywood Neck Written in response to my feelings for the woman who lived next door, a fanciful exploration of a fictional life together, she moved before I could show the manuscript to her.

About the Author

Words have their own lives independent from their function as describers of ‘real’ worlds. They hold time and place but also can help us imagine new worlds. They preserve our experience against the dismantling force of death ... This is why I’m fascinated with words. As well as a writer, I am a painter and a poet. I teach college art and film classes and work at a variety of tasks looking for satisfaction.
