Truth: A Book of Fictions" takes reading through the looking-glass to haunt those linguistic frontiers where pun, paradox and contradiction reign supreme and to navigate the delirious other side of sense where language emerges as the obsessive object of both analysis and desire.
"Truth: A Book of Fictions" is a valuable addition to Nichol's oeuvre. Caringly edited by Irene Niechoda, its range encompasses studies in contradictory information, the book-machine, a "pataphysical hardware catalogue, allegories of the single letter and the alternate semiotics of cartoon clouds. Spanning more than twenty years' worth of rich material, it will be welcomed by logophiliacs and paradoxophiles alike. For as John Ruskin put it, when love and skill work together expect a masterpiece.
