Neutral Receding Lines

Road Rhymes, Volume Two

by j.d.tulloch


Overview

In this second Road Rhymes volume and sequel to 2011's Hypnotizing Lines: Road Rhymes, Volume One, j.d.tulloch reanimates a cast of characters unseen in one's daily stream: an unknown television guest star fixated on a quest for celebrity, an angry war vet bent on broadcasting his masculinity, and a recovering crack addict whose wife chooses rock over life ... plus ministers, hipsters, and half-naked strippers.

Neutral Receding Lines: Road Rhymes, Volume Two occurs in the moment, frolicking with rhythm and language in a chorus of ephemeral, observational tales of consciousness and conscience that explore the juxtaposition of fame and poverty, security and homelessness, dreams and reality, and freedom and addiction.
