BRUCE DEITRICK PRICE:
I've been a writer and a painter throughout my career. Yes, a Gemini. I've published eight books and had a half-dozen art shows. I was writing poetry all along. These days, a lot of energy goes into writing about education (on Improve-Education.org and other places).
Lit4u.com, this site, presents a variety of work that I get a kick out of. There are only a few items in each category, so click around.
Highbrow critics favor the mannered and the muted. I'll take Whitman's "barbaric yawp." Ever want to throw an academic lit mag across the room? Lit4u.com is for you.
Some of this material has been published here and there. Some is available. Contact me at Word-Wise, 757-455-5020.
Covers of my four new e-books are shown on homepage.
Many exciting new projects are coming along. Savor these titles: The Boy Who Saves The World; Manhattan Express; The Mad Woman of Manhattan; We Own The President; "Don't Worry, Sweetheart, I'm Coming Home."
SIGNED BOOKS AVAILABLE. First editions, mint. Hardcover. American Dreams, 1984, experimental novel that is nonetheless readable and intellectually interesting. $40. ("Price has written a funny, stylistically innovative novel that includes everything a popular novel should have: romance, sex, adultery, crime, religion, sickness, death and even Texas." --Publishers Weekly.)
AMERICAN DREAMS UPDATE 2015: Recently discovered list of rave reviews from almost 30 years ago prompted me to put a review on Amazon and to loudly proclaim that American Dreams is the most successful experimental novel in American literature! (Take that, Naked Lunch.) At any rate, this is a reasonable proposition and I hope that professors and critics will debate the issue. If you have an interest in things experimental, please look at this review. You'll enjoy the whole discussion.
Too Easy. 1994, somewhat scandalous erotic thriller about a romantic triangle. $40. ("The unwed mother of all page-turners." Kinky Friedman). Includes UPS. Pay by Paypal. Signed: Bruce D. Price (unless otherwise requested)
LATEST NEWS, Simon & Schuster will reissue Too Easy as an e-book on December 8. You can preorder now on Kindle. See info toward bottom of homepage.
