In a field that has much of its background in traditional sf & much in common with the work of such contemporary writers as Slavomir Mrozek, Kurt Vonnegut & Boris Vian, A Few Last Words is in turn surreal, comic, moving--or filled with the excitement of pure adventure.

Sallis writes about the intimate textures of life on worlds vastly different from our own & on some which are disturbingly similar. Among these psychological landscapes his characters destroy their children, face the problems of art, language & the machinery of history, search for lost friends & families which may or may not be real, struggle at all levels to combat entropy, the nemesis of every closed system & a new Jeremiah walks thru a burning city which has trapped his wife & child, only to find further violence, broken hopes & apocalyptic self destruction.Jim & Mary GLetter to a young poetFaces, handsKettle of starsThe floors of his heartThe opening of the Terran balletThe history makersAnd then the darkFront & centaurEnclaveSlice of universeThe anxiety in the eyes of the cricketJeremiadOccasionsKazooThe creation of Bennie GoodJane cryingBubblesA few last words
