Distribution Automatique

Kyle Schlesinger

has posted an interview he did with us at SUNY-Buffalo in 2000, published by Cuneiform in a chapbook edition of 100. It has not been otherwise published.

"What appeals to me about disrupting nar-
rative structure is the transgression of auto-
maticity. The “automatic” and the machine
gun are apt contemporary images for the
internally terrifying sensation of violence
exactly because 'reaction time' has been
effectively eliminated. No time for pity or
sympathy. Just plug’em. Simply stated: nar-
rative structure = violence. Or, as I put it in
The Boundary of Blur: The cutting edge of
narrative often turns to blood and is fasci-
nated by monsters."
