David David Katzman will be at After-Words books on February 29, 2012 from 6-8 pm signing copies of his book A Greater Monster (Paperback, $17.95, Beadhead Books).
Local author David David Katzman’s second novel, A Greater Monster, is a groundbreaking multimedia work that includes 65 pages of illustrations, numerous graphic design elements, visual text poetry, and links to two websites, one of which features original music composed to mirror events in the book and another featuring an animated sequence.
This story itself is a psychedelic fairytale for the modern age - influenced by Alice in Wonderland, Williams S. Burroughs, and graphic novelist Grant Morrison. This darkly poetic tale takes you on a trip into a twisted alternate reality that reflects civilization like a funhouse mirror. A Greater Monster breathes new life into the possibilities of fiction.
David David Katzman’s first novel, Death by Zamboni, continues to be an acclaimed success. He was published in Bridge Literary Magazine and Tailspins magazine. Katzman has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from The Ohio State University.
