Description

In Outside the Hat lies a landscape of CanaDada and SurRielism, populated by dancing medieval woodcuts, FranglaisÂ?-speaking dogs, sadistic provincial politicians and melodious bison. Including work culled from a plethora of microÂ?press chapbooks such as Mike Harris Made Me Eat My Dog, The Irridescent Phlegm of Bagpipers Glorious with Flu and The Stars Are a Pale Pox on the Sky's Dark Chicken, this is the definitive Gary Barwin collection: stranger than you (can) think.
