A Book:

America and the Cult of the Cactus Boots: A Diagnostic ~ a novel written by: Phillip Freedenberg with Illustrations by: Jeff Walton will be published by Corona \ Samizdat Press. Coming soon in 2021. 

There is a very strongly plotted core architecture of fictional and non-fiction action in the book, which is nested in a complex Mandelbrot fractal structure surrounding a diagnostic theoretical index of ideas.

That is an eloquent way to articulate the work thus far while preserving its mystery, until of course the book is published and read as an entire gestalt, at which point the grander meanings, and implications of the text will be accessible to the reader of the book.

This is a book about writing a book while waiting for a book to arrive in the mail, and the mysterious transmissions regarding author Rick Harsch and his novel The Manifold Destiny of Eddie Vegas, that inspire an eccentric alchemical experimental metafictional odyssey occurring both inside as well as outside the book, under the existential umbrella of a decaying America.

The book explores metafiction, philosophy, neuroscience, totalitarianism, alchemy, psychology, cosmology, psychedelia, politics, physics, mystery, adventure, absurdism, poetry, and literature within an obscured hero’s quest plot arch in the book among a few things.

    I can’t wait any longer. I’m so impatient — I’m actually really hoping to remember that I already experienced this years ago because right now I just feel like I need to experience this as soon as possible.

    Your user interface on this website is trash and this excerpt is so fucking stupid it makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon Sorry – let me put it in words you can understand – The unnecessary complexities forcefully etched into this pointless internet interface, alongside the moronic quality of its contents, is indelibly linked to the extraordinary pain of existence in my temporal body, leading to an overwhelming desire to mutilate my ocular organs with an oxidized eating device.

      Here’s that post again! Thanks again for the input. The book isn’t for everyone.. We like it though, and put a great deal of work into it.. it’s ok not to like it.
