‘The first anthology of contemporary fiction from innovators Chômu Press, Dadaoism is designed as a literary manifesto for the 21st Century. From Reggie Oliver’s ‘Portrait of a Chair’, in which consciousness is explored from the point of view of furniture, to Julie Sokolow’s ‘The Lobster Kaleidoscope’ in which naïve wordplay acts as a foundation for existentialist philosophy in a story of inter-species love, Dadaoism presents a mystery tour of the literary imagination to demonstrate that outside of exhausted mainstream realism and uninspired genre tropes, contemporary English-language writing is a thriving and creatively vital arena. Please “take your protein pills and put your helmet on”; this is something for the adventurous reader. Expect views of some fantastic literary nebulae, and encounters with word-form singularities.’
