Both comic and haunting, Crystal Vision invokes the world of magic and the arcane as filtered through a group of characters gathered on the streets and in the stores of their Brooklyn neighborhood to gossip, insult, lust, brag, and argue. In a series of seventy-eight short narratives, Gilbert Sorrentino perfectly captures the speech, illusions, and confusion of The Magician, Ritchie, The Arab, Irish Billy, Big Duck, Doc Friday, Fat Frankie, and many others. Through formal inventiveness, Sorrentino liberates these characters from the confines of realism and gives us their world - zany, vulgar, hilarious, and exuberant.

Industry Reviews

"Crystal Vision is a remarkable work of transparence, both artfully faceted in its construction and vital--full of speaking fossils--in the life it remembers." -- Thomas LeClair, Washington Post Book World
