Evoking hidden worlds, summoning visions and making magic happen, Conjure: A Book Of Spells is filled with vivid images and tantalizing narrative fragments that stir the heart, mind and eye. Echoing the tone and structure of Medieval and Renaissance grimoires, Dubé’s unique collection joins surrealist automatism with rigorous formal discipline and offers readers a profound and complex work.
Praise for Peter Dubé’s previous work.
“…a philosophical, metafictional work whose form is as quirky as its characters.” Kimberly Bourgeois, The Montreal Review of Books
“…vivid images that in their fantastical energy and kaleidoscopic forms, just about leap off the page.” Michael Rumaker, Lambda Book Report
