Revenge of the Mime: The Collected Prose of Priam X. Steeplejack, 1994-2010

( 2 )

Overview

If a tree falls on a mime in the forest, does he make a sound?
-Chinese proverb-

Some say art reflects life; others say the reverse. The mime says nothing. He leads his audience to unexplored dimensions with the flick of a wrist; he devours worlds in the licking of his lips.

Overview

If a tree falls on a mime in the forest, does he make a sound?
-Chinese proverb-

Some say art reflects life; others say the reverse. The mime says nothing. He leads his audience to unexplored dimensions with the flick of a wrist; he devours worlds in the licking of his lips. But entropy is God's only law-the light burns out. Like a bat drawn to a bonfire, the mime succumbs to the majesty of immolation, and disappears shrieking into endless night.

Alas, what has become of me? Where shall wisdom be found? Hasendorf, our great teacher, was caught stealing bread and died of shame in prison. Pendershaft had himself committed; Cree-Remy enrolled in embalming school; Higgins lost faith; Sanders was manacled with his own invisible cuffs (he cannot remember where he put the key); Shiggles became a priest; Hapsburg converted to charade. I am a tired old man.

    Great collection of humorous short stories.  Most are absurd.  Some are silly, while other are painful.  All are funny and reveal a refreshing creativity.  I haven't come across any other works quite like these.  I am now a fan and hope to see more from them.

    I enjoyed reading about the world these two brothers have create

    I enjoyed reading about the world these two brothers have created. Each story stands on its own but there is an overriding symmetry of heroism or mock heroism or failure in seeking heroism. The attempt is aimed at humor but there is an underlying humanity more profound than just silliness. The authors claim a comparison to Woody Allen. Woody Allen's work is probably more precise and perhaps has less natural variation, sort of the difference between a concert band (Allen) and a group that plays at intimate local events (the two brothers).
