More Description

"James Greer is one of the nimblest and most multilayered American fiction writers."--Dennis Cooper, author of "Ugly Man"

"James Greer writes within the grand tradition of American postmodern, pessimistic, philosophic geniuses. . . . He unites sly humor, erudition, and a certain classical cast of mind, as aware of Heraclitus as he is of Teenage Fanclub. These stories are remarkable. They're also a total freaking blast."--Mathew Specktor, author of "American Dream Machine," senior editor of the "Los Angeles Review of Books"

"Everything Flows" is the first collection of short fiction by novelist, screenwriter, and musician James Greer. Greer mixes anachronistic pseudo-history and unserious/serious digressions into pop culture, pop physics, pop philosophy, and pop music, to arrive at something both universal in scope and intensely personal, twisting language into sometimes-strange shapes to devise new ways of looking at familiar things.

"Everything Flows" also features color collages by Guided by Voices frontman Robert Pollard. Besides being known as one of underground music's most prolific songwriters, Pollard's irrepressible creativity has been an off-the-charts voice for a love-struck generation.

James Greer is the author of the novels "Artificial Light" (Little House on the Bowery/Akashic Books, 2006) and "The Failure" (Akashic Books, 2010), and the nonfiction book "Guided By Voices: A Brief History" (Grove Press, 2005). He's written or co-written movies for Lindsay Lohan, Jackie Chan, Benicio Del Toro, and Steven Soderbergh. He plays guitar and sings in a new band called Detective after the Jean-Luc Godard film of that name.
