The Drop Edge of Yonder - Rudolph Wurlitzer
Submitted by jwoollen on Sun, 2017-05-21 13:05
When Rudy Wurlitzer became a novelist and screenwriter during the 1970s, genre deconstruction was all the rage. The Drop Edge of Yonder, based on an unproduced screenplay from the time, is a psychedelic, fever-dream Western. When fur trapper Zebulon accidently murders a woman, she curses him, declaring, “From now on you will drift between worlds not knowing if you’re dead or alive, or if the unseen worlds exist or if you’re dreaming...” Readers are all the better for his misfortune. Wurlitzer’s prose is a gorgeous, blunt instrument, like riding a bucking bronco on LSD, like if Dispatches were written by Davy Crockett.
