About the Book

As in Rimbaud’s “The Drunken Boat”, “Empire of Light” will take you down a stream of consciousness stream in a rudderless boat to experience visions of ruin and beauty. This book explores a peculiarly American landscape of magnificence and decay, reveling in nightmarish and dreamlike events. The world of “Empire of Light” will fascinate you.


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.
