About


The Strange Woman & Seven Diamonds Miners is a 684-page erasure and “rewrite” of a found book. In the original text, the strange woman is revealed to the reader through the stories of seven men. Each man is a section of the book.  In the rewrite each becomes a stand-in for one of the seven dwarfs from Snow White. Mining the realm of pulp romance, the project is, in part, an attempt to present the text as both image and narrative, and a rumination on process in the form of parody and pastiche. Two rules have been followed thus far in rewriting. The first is to use only the words available on the page. The second is to use the word “bed” whenever it appears in the text. The pages will be posted sequentially  as they are written.

    Remarkably beautiful book. Am looking forward to reading the next episode. Modern yet old-fashioned way of delivering “stories” as back when magazines serialized books.
