Poetry. Flarf. The first revolutionary artistic movement of the 21st century? An imperialist gesture? The new Dada? A marketing strategy? What began as a coinage by Gary Sullivan for certain "so bad it's good" aesthetic effects, combined with Drew Gardner's innovation "google sculpting," quickly became an artistic movement noticed by the BBC, Boston Review, The New York Times, Paris Review, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, and others. FLARF: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FLARF is the first substantial collection of flarf including all of its major participants. Spanning almost two decades of work, this long awaited collection is sure to please, excite, and incense a wide reading public.

Lorraine Graham, Mitch Highfill, Rodney Koeneke, Bill Luoma, Michael Magee, Mel Nichols, Eir?kur ?rn Nor?dahl, Rod Smith, Christina Strong, Edwin Torres, and Elisabeth Workman.

Very hit or miss. I think I prefer the concept of Flarf more than the practice. There were quite a few gems, but I didn‘t get a lot of references and some just were a bit too vague for me. 3 out of 5 on GR.
