"Now begins the revival of an eccentric virtuoso poet/visual artist whose work was admired by many of the 20th century's most unlikely "bobbysoxers". Like fabrics stitched into a crazy quilt, Patchen's hard-to-find books are gathered in We Meet, introducing a wide range of his work to a whole new generation of readers. It is chock-full of far-out poetry, rhythmic numinous prose, facetious fables, and jazzy drawings. Musician and visual artist Devendra Banhart complements We Meet with a celebratory, quixotic preface. So what are you waiting for? Come meet Kenneth Patchen!"--BOOK JACKET.

Here in these pages the extraordinary rage and power of Patchen's imagination, and the virtuosity of his technique, were never more striking-their impact is indeed breathtaking. His new universe is exciting and spirit-cleansing. the light streaming from the hand and heart of this poet-artist illuminates the darkness, the sordid and confused pettiness of our day-to-day existence.

With a new introduction by Ali Smith 'One of the most original, radical and stylish fiction writers of the twentieth century' Independent Desiderio, an employee of the city under a bizarre reality attack from Doctor Hoffman's mysterious machines, has fallen in love with Albertina, the Doctor's daughter. But Albertina, a beautiful woman made of glass, seems only to appear to him in his dreams. Meeting on his adventures a host of cannibals, centaurs and acrobats, Desiderio must battle against unreality and the warping of time and space to be with her, as the Doctor reduces Desiderio's city to a chaotic state of emergency - one ridden with madness, crime and sexual excess. A satirical tale of magic and sex, The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman is a dazzling quest for truth, love and identity.
