This definitive volume of texts by Canadian writer and media artist Mike Cartmell includes a collection of essays written across three decades that examine reading and desire. Lacan, Blanchot, Sebald and Melville lead the charge. In his later years Mike developed a unique and unusual essay style, making ample use of quotations and multiple voices, weighing in on fringe media moments with an exuberant experimentalism. He looks at work by Vincent Grenier, Frank Cole, Phil Hoffman and more. This book also contains scripts/treatments for five of his movies, along with a humorous and enlightening list of finished and unfinished films and videos.

How to write about experimental media in an experimental way? Could form and content actually arrive together? Here is an exemplary practice, all dished in a handsome, fully illustrated limited edition.
