The Complete Works of Marvin K. Mooney: An Interview with Christopher Higgs

Avatar Andrew Worthington

The Complete Works of Marvin K. Mooney is a mindfuck, I think. Higgs is very conscious about grounding himself in the tradition of experimental literature. This novel is indeed within such a tradition. Similarities to previous avant-gardening authors are apparent, but Higgs takes his text much further in terms of fragmentation and self-reflexivity, only to all the while slyly debase such concepts.
