Rational Geomancy: The Kids of the Book-Machine

The Collected Research Reports of the Toronto Research Group 1973-1982, the inevitably incomplete "TRG", form a rich literary history; an exemplary offering to reader/writers on how they might inquire into language; a provisional text-book on how they might construct their own provisional text-book; and a window on one of the most influential interactions in Canadian writing of the 1970's. Provocative, amusing, pretentious, profound, and always much more than a simple sum of bpNichol and Steve McCaffery, their 'creators,' these reports, essays and manifestos vividly enact the continuing collaborations on which all acts of language rest.
