paragraph mentioning Codrescu's upcoming book:
"The book ["The Posthuman Dada Guide: Tzara & Lenin Play Chess," (Princeton University Press, $16.95)] was inspired by a meeting with a Princeton University Press editor at the Frankfurt Book Fair. "We had a 15-minute conversation, and that was it," Codrescu said. "Now I'm writing another one, '1001 Nights, Scheherezade's Bodies, Notes on Narration and Extinction.'"
Andrei Codrescu's latest work is a guidebook to a strange new era
