Dead Ends or Laughing Gas
Take a walk through the nether side of the unbuilt city, along the banks of irreality, with a merry troupe of players: our friends Luis Upista, Levi Seeds, Gretchen Grimes, and of course the indefatigable Chuck Yeager. In Dead Ends Or Laughing Gas, the detective novel and spy novel collude in the spirit of noir and conspiracy theory, all within the Frenchified city of Chicago. Genres collide to open upon expansive literary vistas, two parts pulp, one part Genet, with a twist of Beckettian humor—Voila!
