Poetry. Drama. Literary Nonfiction. Cross-Genre. Its one thing to advocate for writing that pushes boundaries, mixes discourses, and transgresses the dominant aesthetic, but its quite another to actually write it. As a play, PQRS is not justMorePoetry. Drama. Literary Nonfiction. Cross-Genre. Its one thing to advocate for writing that pushes boundaries, mixes discourses, and transgresses the dominant aesthetic, but its quite another to actually write it. As a play, PQRS is not just unstageable, it is a monumental failure.

That is, it fails with such clarity, indifference, legitimate anger, and abandon that it turns into a kind of monument, marking the point where the intellects pessimism collapses into the wills optimism. The many models and forerunners for a project this radical include the posthumously published texts of Gertrude Stein, referred to explicitly here as the most exhaustive syllabic implosion in prose of any language. But if Steins implosion was horizontal, PQRS goes vertical, running up and down the scale of rhetorics: essay, drama, lists of potential performance art projects, lit crit, film crit, music history, autobiography, back to drama, intermission, critique of capital, URL of a Tumblr page of women laughing while holding salads, back to drama (and: scene).

The text succeeds its own conditions. In dire and unsuccessful times, thats the hope.--Brent Cunningham
