Voodoo Politics is an anthology of the writing of Emory Lambus, an itinerant artist, and craftsman. These writings, housed on 3x5 notecards, retain the texture, both viscerally and lyrically, of a life of observation. From a fixed and critical perspective, Lambus has watched American political and cultural trends pass like the rotating images of a slot machine. His commentary ranges wildly formally but is unified by his singular point of view and faith in his own voice. Lambus deconstructs language to reclaim his own narrative and make the hypocrisy of our culture, the Voodoo Politics of America, plainly apparent to the reader. What remains between the prose poems, line-broken statements, aphorisms, and jokes is a physical sensation.
Each copy includes a collection of 35 reproductions of Lambus' notebooks.
Foreward by Henry Taylor. Lambus' writings have been archived by Henry Taylor and Cassi Namoda, and edited and published by Solano Archives.
