Description

A witty and sophisticated examination of nontraditional storytelling in contemporary art and literature, "The Sea-God's Herb" contains reviews and essays on some of the most interesting authors and artists of the last forty years. From William Gass and Thomas Pynchon to Brian Evenson and Steve Erickson, John Domini takes readers beyond that which is "impossible" to explain.

John Domini, noted poet, essayist, and author, has had his work appear in the "New York Times," "GQ," "Paris Review," and "Ploughshares." A former National Endowment for the Arts and Ingram-Merrill Foundation fellow, he teaches at Iowa State University and lives in Des Moines, Iowa.
