Summary: ''The Possibility of Music is an imaginative reconstruction of America in the early 21st century. What would our post-9/11 society look like if it were viewed through a series of funhouse mirrors?'' ''Each of Stephen-Paul Martin's stories is a response to this question, a prose exploration that redefines what it means to write fiction in a world in which the Sistine Chapel has become the Mall of America. Nightmarish at times, playfully amusing at others, Martin's prose is relentlessl
y inventive and challenging, relocating the experimental tradition of Joyce, Kafka, Borges, and Marquez to a contemporary context in which intelligent communication has become both impossible and increasingly necessary.''--BOOK JACKET.
