Summary

Sometimes angst-ridden, sometimes whimsical, sometimes meditative, these short “biographs” depict the life and times of a unique place and its haunting residents. The Wytheport Tales draws inspiration from a range of authors: Dante, Carroll, Joyce, Eliot, and Masters, as well as fantasists such as Cabell, Eddison, and MacDonald.

“In The Wytheport Tales, Laurence Carr observes‘Time is warping in the palace.’ And our nights and days are warping in these sly, canny (or are they uncanny?) poems. Most interested in the world when that world is changing, and by turns in-flected, de-flected, and re-flected, here fanciful, there matter-of-fact, Carr’s tales summon twilight presences from the edges of experience, dark, restless, playful, and urgent.” — Robert Polito, Director, New School Writing Program

“Though it seems to begin in the land of Dylan Thomas’s Nightwood, it extends beyond that into wonderfully evocative, mythic worlds that strike me as utterly original in its language and pace.” — Robert H. Waugh, The Monster in the Mirror: Looking for H. P. Lovecraft

“With The Wytheport Tales, Laurence Carr gives us a work that shimmers and twists, that undulates across the mind’s eye like a tapestry. At times homely, at others baroque, at still others nightmarish, the collection fits multitudes between its covers. I’m grateful to have been introduced to a sampling of Wytheport’s denizens, and look forward to many return visits.” — John Langan, Mr. Gaunt

Laurence Carr teaches creative and dramatic writing at SUNY New Paltz where he created the SUNY Playwrights’ Project and was honored as a Teacher of the Year. Over thirty of his plays and theatre pieces have been produced in New York City, throughout the United States, and in Europe. His prose and poetry have been published and performed throughout the country.
