The Hypothetical Man (pre-order)

from 9.99

by Paul Maliszewski and James Wagner

The Hypothetical Man is the second book from TRNSFR, an imprint of Curbside Splendor. Through language that is at once erudite and commonplace, buoyant and stoic, the narrators of these stories engage in dialogues ranging from the aphoristic to the absurd in an attempt to understand both themselves and the often confusing and contradictory world that surrounds them.

PRAISE FOR PAUL MALISZEWSKI:
“You want me to tell you what sets Maliszewski apart? The answer is probity. The answer also is decency. Here’s another answer: modesty, tact, exactitude, pertinence, reverence, wit. All told, Maliszewski has all the graces, which is why I, in my old age, am renewed and schooled by him. Oh, and another thing: Paul Maliszewski takes no crap.” 
—Gordon Lish

PRAISE FOR JAMES WAGNER:
Praise for the false sun recordings:
“At a time of extraordinary displacement and global confusion, these insistently sane poems manage a remarkable interjection of viable realities, of multiple twists, turns and provisions of language’s singular instrument, syntax, and the words which it puts in order. Each turn here is a possibility, an endlessly refracting multiplicity of instance. Each word takes its own step, as it must, toward recognition.” 
—Robert Creeley
