Fiction. "GOWANUS CANAL, HANS KNUDSEN is a novel of ideas unlike most written these days. Knudsen is a new Stephen Daedalus--but lacking a coherent tradition to rebel against as he misfires his way through doctrine and avant garde theater into a deep sadness, one that exists in direct confrontation with the elated 'new new world' of late capitalism. In Knudsen's world people speak in fits and starts, and understand one another little better. In his portrait of a character ground down in a world where logos have replaced logos, Thilleman gives us a compelling novel, leaving us to clutch after what really matters"--Ted Pelton, author of MALCOLM & JACK.
