22/06/18: Letter to the Author of the Letter to the Father

Letter to the Author of the Letter to the Father

Letter to the Author of the Letter to the Father, the debut short fiction collection by 3:AM Magazine co-editor-in-chief Tristan Foster, is forthcoming from Melbourne-based publisher Transmission Press.

From the publisher:

Eels, snakes, artists, photos, writers, sprinters, dead men, thieves, possums, sphinxes, whales, fathers, mothers, children, neighbours, lovers, churches, rivers, oceans, devils, heroes, stones, fur, fish, skin, blood.

Astrologers and mandarins. Delhi and Parramatta, Byzantium and Cappadocia.

The texts in this collection hunt down the lost and the dead, tracing their paths from small apartments in the suburbs of Sydney to Malpensa Airport in Milan, bearing witness to what they get up to when our backs are turned.

By turns strange, beautiful and beguiling, Letter To The Author of the Letter to the Father is an outstanding collection of short fictions from one of Australia’s most exciting new voices.

ITINERANT was created in 2010 by interdisciplinary artist Hector Canonge. The initiative was a small platform for Contemporary Performance Art, and had its origins in the monthly series A-Lab Forum that Canonge organized at Crossing Art Gallery in Flushing, Queens. Following the growing interest in Live Art, and the need to present performance programs in the borough, ITINERANT was launched in 2011 under the auspices of QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development. In 2012, ITINERANT was recognized by the City of New York as the first Performance Art festival taking place throughout the five boroughs that make the metropolitan area: Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island. In 2013, following the large scale venture in NYC, Canonge journeyed through Latin America creating the Spanish edition of the festival, Encuentro ITINERANTe which was presented in various cities in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2015, Canonge brought back ITINERANT to New York City. Since then the festival has introduced, and featured the work of local, national and international emerging and established artists introducing and featuring their work at local museums, art galleries, performance art spaces, and public parks.
