Poetry. Taylor Brady's OCCUPATIONAL TREATMENT continues the multi-volume cross-genre narrative work begun in Brady's MICROCLIMATES. Hopping from fragmented shards of poetry to cerebral prose to an odd and funny one-act play, OCCUPATIONAL TREATMENT sardonically explores the follies and momentary pleasures of existing in a jarring landscape saturated by media, detritus (real and imaginary), and other humans, a place where we occupiers find ourselves continually re-occupied by malevolent...well...unknowns. "He does not face his society. Detaches from it with a click and then the firing. Becomes its face. We concede to his hysteria of land the robust earth penetrator, unseen. The worth of imperceptible red stuffs a body in our mouths. A lack reappears in that frame, trailing remnants of an aspirated stowaway along the network's switching posts. Cut."-from the book. Taylor Brady grew up in Tampa, Florida, and since 1998 has lived in San Francisco. YESTERDAY'S NEWS is also available from SPD.
