a little bit more from chandler brossard . . .

why isn’t brossard more popular?


consider this excerpt from a short piece called “dirty books for little folks” – all the charm of a w.s. burroughs routine – and then some!

They [Hansel and Gretel] had been into sibling incest for a long time, ever since they had learned that their little friend Oedipus, who lived down the block and who knew a good thing when he saw it, was plowing his mother.


. . . Hansel and Gretel were celebrating their little victory with a big joint of Lebanese red. “Let’s play rape tonight” said Gretel, who was really getting turned on by the hash.


“OK,” said Hansel, letting out a little smoke. “I’ll be Nigger Jim and you can be Tricia Nixon."


—from Chandler Brossard’s Over the Rainbow? Hardly: Collected Short Seizures, Sun Dog Press, 2005
