Literary Nonfiction. LGBT Studies. Art. Bracketed by three deaths--his mother's, his friend's and his dog's--Matias Viegener's 2500 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME TOO is an extraordinary capture of a life and a consciousness in middle age, when mortality and the grid of associations laid by one's personal history cannot be denied. Chained to the task of compiling these 'random' lists, Viegener creates a self-portrait--of the whole world --that encompasses everything from Descartes to the grooming habits of parrots, with plenty of sex, beauty and boredom. Like Basho's Narrow Road to the Deep North, Viegener's journey leads nowhere except to an emptying out. Compulsively readable, the book is a brilliant achievement. I could not put it down.--Chris Kraus

2500 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME TOO is published as part of the TrenchArt: Surplus Series, with an introduction by Kevin Killian and visual art by Klaus Killisch.
