Flat Domestic Garbage from Herr Werewolf, Hamburg--Pedestrian Speech Act Defies Lemon Law

Was Kunst Alles Kann, that's for sure. I'm jealous actually jealous of Erni's use of the English language. And I'll take flat garbage art any day, especially if it's in honor of Dieter Roth. The Haptic Werewolf has eye-bulging, bold style--the yellow UHU packaging which is the color of lemons, the gaudy pink on the exterior envelope, and the pond scum green of the book cover. It is a terrific book and I look forward to spending some time reviewing it. I can see his mind at work as he puts this mail art ensemble together and intellectually plays with words. Every sentence is a philosophical statement, and I admire the hilarious way he gets his own compliments in:

Mucho gracias, Señor Bär!
