Lizard Telepathy Fox Telepathy

Lizard Telepathy Fox Telepathy


By Yoshinori Henguchi, translated by D. Michael Ramirez


Yoshinori Henguchi's brash, funny, bilingual collection of poetry and photography launches readers into the thick of a thriving Japanese subculture. In both the poetry and the photography, Henguchi makes the everyday surreal: he blasts a microphone with an ironically interrogatory camera flash; he snarls a hammer in pink thread; and in the space of a tea time, a body and a planet fall apart while children grow giant. Henguchi explores what he calls man's "foolish will" to define himself on a canvas of "infinities and nothingness," of absurdities and awe.


Yoshinori Henguchi is a photographer, artist, musician and poet from Osaka, Japan. D. Michael Ramirez, the translator, has a Ph.D. in Japan Studies from Osaka University. To learn more about the book and its contributors, visit the Lizard Telepathy Fox Telepathy website.
