Here's what America is saying about Amerika:


"The real counterculture is not gone. Mark Amerika is proof of that...Here we have a writer who unravels his male heterosexuality as thoroughly as any post-feminist, who's willing to make disturbing accusations against mainstream culture, while simultaneously wrestling with postmodernity." Philadelphia Inquirer

"Amerika has taken the classic structure of the novel, run it through a postmodern mixer and poured it into a form that most resembles the brain patterns of a video game junkie about to beat his high score." Denver Post

"Fiction for {Amerika} becomes a kind of whirling acid trip, an anti-narrative-as-mind-altering drug that makes you see the universe and language like you've never seen them before. The outcome of these breathless heteroglossic strobes is part Leyner-ed Ginsberg, part Acker-ed Burroughs, part some kind of mutant Dexadrined Beckett..." American Book Review

"A remarkable book, it held me all the way. Mr. Amerika---if indeed that is his name---has achieved a unique beauty in his most artful marriage of Blake's lyricism and the iron-in-the-soul of Celine. Are we talking a new and hard-hitting Antonin Artaud? Absolutely. And much more." Terry Southern, author of Candy and The Magic Christian and screenwriter for Dr. Strangelove and Easy Rider

"...all of Amerika's experiences contribute to his disjointed, driving writing style..." National Public Radio's New Letters On The Air

"...contemporary, media-savvy space..." Village Voice

"Mark Amerika is showing us that William Burroughs came out of jazz knowledge and that now everything's political---and everything's coming out through the lens of sexuality." Kathy Acker, author of Empire of the Senseless and Blood and Guts in High School
