About a third of the way through Jason Stuart Ratcliff’s The Books of Angelhaunt, he intones (yes, intones), “I’m trying to install in you a sense of madness. The mad sense is a sense of mystery and the numinous. There are distinct aspects to madness: one is fragmentation, another is paranoia, another is confusion.” In parrot of this, I’ll simply say there are three distinct aspects to this large collection of plotless rants: one is fragmentation, another is paranoia, another is confusion.

Description: The Angelhaunt Library
The best comparison that can be made is this: Jason Stuart Ratcliff is a postmodern Antonin Artaud. On multiple levels. Or perhaps a Henry Miller unchecked, with a hair fewer literary references, but in any case, wild, beautiful, dizzying. In his latest volume, The Books of Angelhaunt Volume II, Ratcliff engages—like Artaud—in lurid rants brimming with symbolism, scriptural overtones, non sequitur, and a constant appeal to madness.
