Seven strange and disturbing stories - computer-generated collaborations based on pieces by different writers, and shaken, stirred and transformed by the poet John Tranter. In a Norwegian fiord, Biggles clashes passionately with the noted lesbian writer Radclyffe Hall. In the mountains of Japan, Henry Miller struggles to understand the Master of Go. Allen Ginsberg takes the Bobbsey Twins on a raving, drug-soaked trip across America, and Louisa Alcott's "Little Women" suffer perilous mystical experiences in the Mexican desert. John Tranter is a leading modern poet and the editor of Jacket, an Internet literary magazine. Alongside his more approachable narrative, lyric and critical work he has persistently explored a project of experimentation, interrogating the traffic between speech, writing and meaning, and challenging the preconceptions of the reader.
