Cultural Writing. Like everyone else, you dial and receive wrong numbers. But what do you make of them? And what do they make of you? Part treatise on umor (humor without the h), and part treasure-map to a utopia worth living in, this surrealist adventure reveals a whole kaleidescope of new worlds. Along the way we are introduced to many "Friends of Wrong Numbers" through the ages--Gnostics, heretics, alchemists, nonconformist thinkers, poets, outsiders, anarchists and jazz musicians. Franklin Rosemont, poet, editor and historian, and his wife Penelope founded the first indigenous Surrealist Group in the United States.
