Description
"[Julián] Ríos's novel Larva (1990) received international acclaim and was deemed an instant classic. In Poundemonium, Ríos resurrects Larva's pun-mad, verbose characters and sets them down in London, where they visit sites associated with Ezra Pound. The poet Milalias speaks through most of the book, his girlfriend Babelle provides maps and photographs that relate to the sites mentioned in the text, and a third character provides footnotes, mostly mad puns, on facing pages. Both astoundingly confusing and tremendously funny…. Wonderfully translated into an English that preserves much of the original humor."—Booklist
