Notes
“John Greyson … has published numerous projects, many masquerading as writing, all using his unique and convoluted strategem of fiction contained within ‘reality’ (a word which Nabokov claims must always be enclosed by quotes) contained within additional layers of fiction and ‘reality.’ The whole is immersed in a lesser or greater atmosphere of ironic but restrained intelligence, a characteristic which we might find akin to ‘camp.’ "This book came to its current form by a rather circuitous route. It is an amalgam of two projects: a compendium of John’s queer writings for Art Metropole, and a publication that developed out of an exhibition of John’s video and film at The Power Plant, curated by Barbara Fisher. As the video, film, writing and cartoon format works are all manifestations of John’s particular deviant style, they make appropriate bedfellows. "John has reworked all of the projects herein, so that in addition to being a record of a history of media activity, they also continue that activity. The one exception is the transcript to his film, Urinal, which is faithful to the completed film, although not to the original script.” – from the preface, Reality, by AA Bronson.
