LOG RHYTHMS Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee Artists’ Books/Culture • 1998 • ISBN 1-887123-25-3 • $35 PB • 11" x 8 1/2" • 24 pp
In this book Susan Bee sets and illustrates a long serial poem by Charles Bernstein, offering a running visual dialogue with the poem’s textual acrobatics. Together they explore the psychopathology of everyday life: at times dark, at times dizzyingly demented, swerving from the wildly comic to the searingly political and from the whimsical to the elegiac.
“[LOG RHYTHMS] coos at us over the crib and a potential liberation from conventional sense, a dawning aware- ness that the world is still to be made.”
