Read full description of the books:
The complexities of alienation hybridize the mouth, double the tongue. The logic of Froude’s syntax gives us, mercifully, the poetics of the divided tongue: in the space between multiple possibilities, we are invited to trespass our own borders . . . that we might — finally — hear (and learn to speak) radical change and transformation. FABRIC is a remarkable and necessary book, a wonderful achievement.
Of FABRIC: Accepting whatever its elegant sentences say, in their not conventional logic, I’m convinced it contains whatever I need to understand it. It says it’s about memory, numbers (sequence), consciousness . . . And I guess it is, I really like reading it (a big compliment). Being in the fabric of it, though it is so mysterious — an amazing book.
I love Richard Froude’s declarative, incandescently plain sentences, which at first seem like high-stakes non sequiturs, then a study in perfect, surprising aphorism, then a deftly woven web of profundity. The formal distillation and intellectual range of this book are impressive enough; even more so is Froude’s gentle but insistent touching on questions of God, mortality, war, memory, family, intimacy, and history. Froude sets up poetic shop in the fraught space between ‘terror and fertility,’ and wrests from it this exceptionally beautiful, intelligent book.
This is a British blurb, because we were both born in England. Richard Froude is sort of brilliant. To translate: he is a complete and utter bloody genius. I am thrilled to stand behind this gorgeous, fused book. I remember when I met Richard, and we sat on some stairs at Naropa. I tried to explain to him that he was doing something strange and beautiful in his writing, that was different to other kinds of writing. I said: “Have you ever considered the possibility that you’re actually a novelist?” He looked at me blankly, but now I think the prediction has come true. What is a novel? That’s separate. Ask Richard. Ask the person who mutates the given form.
