Ray McDaniel has written a thoughtful review of William Fuller’s Playtime for Constant Critic: “…sometimes he sounds like he’s trying to recount a dream, and sometimes he sounds like he’s carefully wending his way through a police deposition, and sometimes he sounds like he is speaking to a very precocious but somewhat literal-minded child, and sometimes he sounds like he’s trying to convince you he isn’t crazy, or maybe it’s that he thinks you are crazy and he is trying to convince you that he understands, please come down from the roof, everything will be fine.” Read the full review here.

In Playtime, William Fuller offers dispatches from a strange world. Through deadpan memoranda and dark parables, he addresses uncommon topics from witchcraft to vegetable life. Yet his focus often swerves from recognizable phenomena to the unobservable edges: “We are always searching in vain. Something moves, making us aware that once we were more aware.” And in that striving, shared between writer and reader, Fuller suggests that this strange world is decidedly ours.
praise for HALLUCINATION
“Books of the caliber of Hallucination come along rarely. Books that both puzzle and dazzle at first, then prove better and better with each re-reading. Books with a passion to get the spirit right. Ladies and gentlemen, a masterpiece.”—Calvin Bedient, Boston Review
