Works by Grant Maierhofer
Works is a collection, but also something new: it is a conversation between Maierhofer’s early and contemporary writings that shares its title with Édouard Levé’s masterful experimental Works. It’s a book containing many books, with new introductions and emendations to make it a definitive and expansive heir to its previous components. Flamingos, a novella, chosen by Blake Butler as one of the best books of 2016 for Vice Magazine, is the first in a cycle of books Maierhofer’s writing on modern madness. This edition is an expansion of the original, which was published by ITNA Press and features a new introduction by German Sierra. Postures, originally published as the eighth book in Publication Studio’s Fellow Travelers Series, features an introduction by Sean Kilpatrick and praise from Kevin Killian (RIP). Bleach is a collection of new and old stories, and has received praise from Matthew Simmons and Kate Zambreno. The collection features pieces previously published in Berfrois, Terraform, 3:AM Magazine, and elsewhere. And finally, the original unpublished edition of the PX138 3100-2686 User’s Manual, first written as liner notes for Lorn’s EP The Maze to Nowhere. The manual received accolades from Tan Lin but never saw the light of day, until now.
