Read full description of the books The Hermaphrodite: An Hallucinated Memoir (Green Integer):

A wonderful allegoric romp that busts open archetypes and rebuilds them in some sort of current contextual way. This is literature with a wink, not a hammer. And I am delighted to have discovered Daniel Grandbois and I am particularly taken with Alfredo Benavidez Bedoya's woodcuts.

Moreover, thank god for Green Integer. Don't know them? Well, they publish fantastic new work and keep vital classic work in the printed form. Just listen to this mission statement: Essays, Manifestos, Statements, Speeches, Maxims, Epistles, Diaristic Jottings, Narratives, Natural histories, Poems, Plays, Performances, Ramblings, Revelations, and all such ephemera as may appear necessary to bring society into a slight tremolo of confusion and fright at least.

Delicious, right!?!

His work has appeared in Fiction, Boulevard, and Conjunctions, among others.

"These are funny, bizarre, moving stories--a pleasure to read." --LYDIA DAVIS

"These are works of surpassing literary merit... some of the most inventive, restless and creative fiction I have read in the last five years. [They] sustain contemporary American fiction, even rehabilitate it, and to have all these works in one place for readers of the future is to do a good thing for all who care about the condition of prose writing in North America." --RICK MOODY

"Reading [Unlucky Lucky Tales], I think of the great jazz improvisers or Angela Hewitt's version of Bach's "Goldberg Variations." Here is a plenitude, a world of effects and inventions, from a fine and mentally agile writer... This is a book of imagination's plenty. Ultimately, it is a book of wonder and delight. --ED OCHESTER

"Perhaps Daniel Grandbois is the love child of Rod Serling, HP Lovecraft, and Russell Edson. His prose poems hybridize shards of folk tale, sci fi, wacky animism, derailed creation myths, and surreal apocalypse... Kiss conventional reality goodbye and prepare to have your brain rearranged, to enter a realm in which scintillating, nonstop invention is god." --AMY GERSTLER

“Imagine, as Daniel Grandbois has, a conflation of Marxes (Karl and Groucho) and a hipster Plato, and you can begin to understand the enterprise of reimagining the history of Western philosophy as a series of comic summaries, complete with abstracts for the novice and infused with a storyteller’s sense of the need to entertain, while shedding light on the great intellectual enterprises from ancient to modern times. This book is a marvel.” —CHRISTOPHER KENNEDY

"Animated by a wonderfully droll and fantastical imagination, these little stories are delicious." --RIKKI DUCORNET

"One is tempted to look for precedents to his odd surrealism and verbal pranks, but it's clear Grandbois has staked out his own territory, one peopled with offbeat characters and varied discourses... The wise fool, an old conceit of literature, resurfaces, and he is of course Grandbois himself." --PETER JOHNSON

"Grandbois is a master of the double-edged word, of stories that both cut through the world like butter and double-back to saw themselves to bits." --BRIAN EVENSON

"Singularly original and captivating... an important work of fiction that should transform what notions of fiction may currently exist." --LUIS J. RODRIGUEZ

"[A] modern space-time set of interconnected myths and stories... startling sets of shape shiftings and melting tableaus... elegantly precise... graceful... a work of art." --ED SANDERS

"A report from another world... [W]e are reminded of why we read fiction in the first place: to gain access to the wonderful peculiarities of the author's mind." --JEFF VANDERMEER (Amazon Daily Blog)

"A celebration of language in its purest form, exactly what poetry itself was supposed to be." --BEST EXPERIMENTAL BOOK Listing 2008, CCLaP (Chicago Center for Literature & Photography)

"In a folklore-like fugue that resembles a darkly humorous Jorge Luis Borges or Italo Calvino, Grandbois... use[s] everything from animals to sentient pieces of paper to illustrate metaphysically dizzying truths about the world." --THE ONION
