Genres Synch: Persona, Humor, Poetry, Art, Fiction, Memoirs, Interpretation, Exposition is the fourth full-fledged multigenres mix of Edward/Ed/Eddie/etc. Both his genres and his persona are not mixed up. In fact, they are well integrated, although some consider this a matter of opinion. In addition to the four mixes (Mélanges)─see the list following the preface—his most recent book was a writers’ group anthology, The View from Kings Point. This book, actually, is thus his fifth. Hence the title Genres Synch, a play on both the Latin/French/Spanish quinque/cinq/cinco (five) and being in synchronization/sync, among other things.
The author explores the meaning of his proliferating persona in his books, including this one. They now number about twenty-five; he plans to round them out (or rather even them out) at thirty-six in the future.
The writings in Genres Synch range from good-natured humor to satire to avant-garde poetry to fictional stories to diverse memoirs to Hebraic and Classical culture to scholarly exposition.
The book features truly outstanding guest contributions of the author’s wife, Reva (Spiro Luxenberg); sons, Judah and Benjamin; daughter, Aliza; brother, Rob; and writing-group friends Joe Bruno and David Jones.
