About the Book
...a quasi-historical fiction, presents fifteen tales involving five proliferating characters who appear in different guises. The book features original art by Lynn Hassan.
The book is described by author Eugene Mirabelli like this.
“Eugene Garber’s Vienna ØØ is simply astonishing. He gives us fifteen interlocking tales populated by a repertory company of brilliant artists, demons, lunatics and beautiful losers, all set in an hallucinatory Vienna. The originals for this troupe—Mahler, Schiele, Freud, Alma Schindler—are dusty, fading photographs beside the vivid fictional personae that Garber has loosed in the pages of this book. Garber vivifies his characters in the most dazzling prose written anywhere. Indeed, language is another demonic force in these fables, saturating 1900 Vienna in strange colors, soaking into the soul like lysergic acid. Garber has come with dynamite to the world of flat minimalist fiction, and has blown it apart. Welcome to Vienna ØØ.”
