Oppression for the Heaven of It

$17.00

Fiction. Winner of the 2013 Kenneth Patchen Award for the Experimental Novel. In his encomium for the award, contest judge Harold Jaffe stated, “The winning novel has the virtue of being frank and honest, and, particularly, it addresses an exiled condition—schizophrenia—from the subject position. One rarely finds that. OPPRESSION FOR THE HEAVEN OF IT consists primarily of dialogue between Moonway and his mother, the ostensible writer. The dialogue is evocative and necessary, and the novel has heart, honesty, deep compassion, and addresses a mostly outlawed subject vividly and unselfishly.”
