SEVENTH SONG OF
D M Mitchell
A deranged serial-killer goes on a
rampage of sexual atrocity across a Europe falling apart in the wake of an
unspecified global crisis. But is he what he seems? A cast of implausible
characters in a (to say the least) unreliable narrative push the boundaries of
credibility and expression. Dreams and nightmares, desire and delirium, all
melt together into a metatextual puzzle. A psycho-sexual anti-novel that owes
much to its transgressive ancestors – Sade, Lautreamont, Bataille, Artaud with
more than a dash of Burroughs and Lovecraft thrown into the cauldron.
D M Mitchell has edited the
anthologies The Starry Wisdom and Songs Of The Black Wurm Gism for
Creation Books and is the author of A
Serious Life, a biography of transgressive maverick publishers Savoy Books.
