Cambodia: A Book for People Who Find Television Too Slow

from the manufacturer

Cambodia: A Book For People Who Find Television Too Slow is a ferociously brilliant book that challenges its readers to see the world with new eyes, in a new light. Through an arresting division of its pages-- thriteen wildly imaginative short stories at the top, and a passionate essay on colonialism and Southeast Asia at the bottom, running like a Mekong River footnote throughout the book-- Brian Fawcett startles, amuses, and infuriates his hooked readers with juxtaposed images and penetrating insights into the media jungle that defines our age. Like subtitles read in a foreign film, the pace of Cambodia accelerates, and the readers eye quickens as the work unfolds. Soon, Cambodia is moving more swiftly than the images on the evening news, showing us that the books title is not an enigma, but a realistic description of its remarkably interactive contents. Brian Fawcetts passion stirs us to resist the annihilation of memory and imagination in our society, lest we lose our right to remember our pasts and envision new futures in a violent world where Cambodia is as near as your television set.
