From the BookThug catalogue...

"Do we, any of us, speak the same language? Blissful Times is a collection of poetry 
that tries to find out. Beginning with found text from Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, 
Sandra Alland 'translates' the poem 63 times, morphing it into different poetic forms 
and emotional states, even different media. Using formal constraints, specialty 
dictionaries, internet search and translation engines, voice-activated software, the 
weather, global news and personal experiences, Alland invents pieces ranging from 
lyric poetry to sound poetry, from theatre to rant, from photography to Boggle. Edgy, 
passionate, amusing and intelligent, Blissful Times is a poetic cocktail for our troubled 
times."

A dynamic – indeed, radical – political vision.
