Daytrtmnt / Gallo, Peter ; Ronell A., 2002

 Item
Identifier: CC-40325-42296
Scope and Contents

In the introduction, Robert Buckeye writes, "Gallo works in the mental health system and sees the hospital, not just as a metaphor, but as an absolute reality that governs our lives...If we note that Gallo's work incorporates text, we must also understand that in his art text is a context that in itself alters picture, or what a picture might be. The words that we read or cannot read are also brushstrokes. Gallo may white out, cross out, write over, but he does so, not so much to edit as to return to beginnings." The title "daytrtment" signifies day treatment in a mental health institution. This book is an example of "dirty typewring."Daytrtmnt combines writing and drawing and recounts his day to day experiences as a social worker in rural Vermont and has been compared to the works of Guyotat and Artaud. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

C's latest project is a series of political and philosophical essays, and Coetzee divides each page of the present novel in three: any given page features a bit of an essay (often its title and opening paragraph) at the top; C's POV in the middle; and Anya's voice at the bottom. C's opinions in the essays are mostly on the left (he despises Bush, Blair & Co., and is opposed to the Iraq War) and they bore Anya, who wants something less lofty. Meanwhile, Anya's lover, Alan"”a smart, conservative 42-year-old investment consultant who's good in the sack, and who stands for everything C despises"”becomes increasingly...
