SIX GALLERY PRESS
Six Gallery Press says: Federman is already well-known for his extensive publications in poetry, criticism and fiction, including Here and Elsewhere: Poetic Cul de Sac, from Six Gallery Press. This new book, called More Loose Shoes and Smelly Socks, is a collection of fragments of writing. They range from pure fantasy to poignant memoir to deceptively simple ramblings--something for which Federman is known. Like his previous work, More Loose Shoes catches you off guard, always speaking with two tongues--one glib, the other serious; one English, one French (the book is bilingual). In it, he explores the difficulties of self-expression, the futility of writing, thoughts of "changing tense" and golf. More Loose Shoes continues to develop the Federman story that has been spun through his previous works.
