The Reaganites Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 Tim Roberts BlazeVOX [books]

Here is a monstrous demonstration of the bloat conditions of our world. Written to extremes, as if to show how truly, really, impossible the current state of language and culture has become. What can literature do except stop a door—or trip us up, physically as well as lyrically? Who speaks in this massive text, elegantly crafted on the page in wry, deliberate, imitation of a sacred text, twin-columned? The title provokes a terrifying frisson, as if branding a generation with a rubric of befogged conservatism. An epic work, full of waste and doubt and lyric longing in an ever more post-post-apocalyptic mode. The Reaganites is an iconic book that declares its importance in advance of reading by its sheer heft and volume. Put it in full view as a kind of dare, a gauntlet thrown in the face of literary decorum. For here is an argument that cannot be overlooked.

—Johanna Drucker
