Overview


Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. In MEMORIES, DREAMS, AND INNER VOICES, the poet Michael Ruby records three strands of our elusive experiences: the involuntary memories of bygone times and places that day and night flash across our minds; the mysterious inner voices heard in the last seconds before sleep; and the imaginary experiences called dreams, most of which we forget upon waking. The first and third books of this trilogy, FLEETING MEMORIES and the hypnagogic INNER VOICES HEARD BEFORE SLEEP, are among the first literary forays into two un-sounded terrains of consciousness; while the hyperrealist DREAMS OF THE 1990s, joins the dream books of such French writers as Leiris and Perec, and the Americans Kerouac and Burroughs. Taken together, Ruby's trilogy is a unique fusion of history, fiction and poetry that not only rescues unplumbed psychic experience but also exults in the laughter, terror and baffling innuendos of unbidden utterance. With an uncanny ability to elicit our own most elusive moments of consciousness, this book is an instigation and guidebook for readers in their own explorations of the psyche.
