Ron Sakolsky - Surrealist Subversions – Rants, Writings & Images by the Surrealist Movement in the United States

Comprehensive compilation from 2002 presenting more than 200 texts, tracing the surrealist adventure in the U.S., from the early beginnings of the Chicago Surrealist Group in 1966 (out of which the Surrealist Movement emerged), right up to the latest millenial communiqué. Or in the words of Franklin Rosemont (from the foreword): “No other book offers so much on the relation of surrealism to Black liberation, urban rebellion, ecology, everyday life, the critique of work, capital, patriarchy, prison, whiteness, the traditional Left, the media, the degradation of language, and all forms of miserabilism”. From the typewriters of Franklin & Penelope Rosemont, Joseph Jablonski, Nancy Joyce Peters, Paul Garon and Jane Cortez (to name but a few), the reader is offered an eclectic mix of obeservations on diverse subjects as Teducation Film, authentic eroticism, Krazy Kat, the right to be lazy, Lord Buckley, women’s liberation, horror movies on television and other profundities of life (Poetry, Freedom & Love), interspersed with black & white illustrations.
