New lost Stephen Dixon novel emerges

Early novel by Stephen Dixon rejected widely for being experimental has just been published by Fugue State Press. The excerpt seems awesome, obviously. $15 includes U.S. shipping.

Stephen Dixon: “SOASAOS:AN is a novel I wrote 40 years ago, tried to get it published for a couple of years, got some unflattering rejections for a change–before they were always gracious and ‘not right for us’ and ‘wouldn’t know how to market this’ and ‘hope you have better luck with it with another publisher…’ If accepted, it would have been my first published book.”

      I have such anxiety about choosing my first Dixon book. Any suggestions?

      Interstate is a good novel, for starters. I. and End of I. are an okay place to start with the story/novel hybrid he does so often. Other crucial Dixon books: Frog, Sleep, Collected Stories, Too Late.
