Featured: The Rest by Aram Saroyan

Aram Saroyan, The Rest

"In the immortal words of Captain Beefheart: “The past sure is tense.” Saroyon’s masterpiece from 1971 never seemed more current than now. Like Marcel Duchamp, who claimed to be making work for a generation 50 years hence, Saroyan’s work is now finding its due reception with a generation for whom the ideogram translates into icon. Four decades ago, Saroyan taught us how we read today. Grab this primer and hold on tight: we’ve never read so fast, furiously, and futuristically." —Kenneth Goldsmith
