📙 Brief Lives by Chris Price — free pdf


Bold and original, this collection is a genre-busting sequence of poetry and prose that confronts the place where mortality meets creativity. Using discontinuous narrative and alphabetical order, the author constructs a series of vignettes mixing biography, autobiography, arcane snippets of information, and meditations on life as performance. Written with great lucidity, this strange and captivating dictionary of fragments offers funny, thoughtful, and moving reflections on life, art, and the unknown.
