‘The first anthology of contemporary fiction from innovators ChÃ´mu Press, Dadaoism is designed as a literary manifesto for the 21st Century. From Reggie Oliverâ€™s â€˜Portrait of a Chairâ€™, in which consciousness is explored from the point of view of furniture, to Julie Sokolowâ€™s â€˜The Lobster Kaleidoscopeâ€™ in which naÃ¯ve wordplay acts as a foundation for existentialist philosophy in a story of inter-species love, Dadaoism presents a mystery tour of the literary imagination to demonstrate that outside of exhausted mainstream realism and uninspired genre tropes, contemporary English-language writing is a thriving and creatively vital arena. Please â€œtake your protein pills and put your helmet onâ€; this is something for the adventurous reader. Expect views of some fantastic literary nebulae, and encounters with word-form singularities.’
