More > hard-to-obtain privately printed editions comprise Richard David Kennedy’s HOUSE OF DECEMBER. Its author obviously sees “things clearly ...and whole,” to quote E. M. Forster in Howard’s End, and he has also realized Forster’s admitted intention as voiced in the frontispiece of that novel: “To connect…” The poems on physical nature, fleshly and spiritual love, the creative act, and time, all echo Kennedy’s concern with the sanctity of the individual and the presence of the godhead in each and every one. The poet’s technical virtuosity adds further complexity and density to his profound ideas. He makes us see things not only clearly and whole, but differently than before, the mark of an artist of the first rank. PAPERBACK EDITION< Less

Lost In Place By Richard David Kennedy
Paperback: $23.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
This is the sequel to the hilarious and outrageous THE DISGRACE OF MYSPACE that received rave reviews from the day it was released. Not ones to rest on their laurels, “The Boys” have gone... More > to almost no trouble at all to refine their particular brand of insanity by augmenting and enhancing the most popular “headers” in The DisGrace, in order to provide Spacers and mere earth-dwellers alike with that much more rollicking humor and wit. Every bit as abrasive and dry as the original– perhaps even more so, LOST IN PLACE is the second book in what will be a trilogy on the globe’s largest and most popular social networking portal. While you are all but guaranteed not to find “Mr. or Mizz Right” by reading it, if you appreciate satirical, often pungent, social commentary from the mind of one of the world’s best– but still unknown, witticists, then Lost In Place will also be very “right” for you.< Less

The Encuentro isn’t just another novel. A fairy tale in novel form– told as a farce, presented like a play, and executed like a movie, it is indeed “novel” in every way. It... More > is very much as advertised: “A Children’s Story For Adults” – very mature adults; it is also Kennedy as his innovated best– “pulling out all the stops,” and turning the medium right on it’s head to make a point, which is his vehicular and artistically stylized expression of his treatise- Psychophysics: The Point Of Everything. So, while the subject matter is bawdy, the humor outrageous and the wit nonpareil, it is, to be sure, a deeply profound exposition of the nature and meaning of life at the end of the day. It is, as he has stated, “probably (my) best symphony yet,” and destined to be an instant classic. Where else will you find a novel’s author portraying himself in his own book as a “movie director”? The Encuentro is a must read.< Less

Thisi is the sequel or "sickened" edition that present a slightly different look at the second largest SN in the world. It is chuck full of hundreds of facetious annotations that will leave... More > you snickering, if not rollicking. Seen through Kennedy's penetrating (often merciless) eye, this is a book that will show you another reality– the virtual and the absurd, as offered by the actual members themselves. Is this an exposé? Not quite. This is where you will find a rather large “sample” of those Spacers, who are so eager to find “Mr. Right,” fame and fortune, or just their fifteen minutes in the world’s limelight, exposing themselves, quite unlike you may have expected. Don’t credit the author(s); credit the members themselves for making it all possible...Newcomers, as well as those who've been around MySpace for awhile, will find this snippet of societal arrogance and self-centeredness simply irresistible.< Less

In his own provocative, inimitable style, Kennedy turns his attention to the convention of verse again for the first time in over three decades. Regarding no subject as inviolable, he offers up... More > "Cogitations Of Different Kind" as he thoughtfully explores and expounds on the universal themes of life and love, God and religion and being "alive,” with particular emphasis on the notion of “sanity.” More often than not, he chooses to take the middle ground on certain subjects, preferring instead to make his reader “think” as opposed to alienate or antagonize. But this is not always the case; and where he takes a stand, there can be no doubt where his sentiments lie.< Less
