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.


“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
