“Tungsten is a difficult element. Never alone, it is found only in compounds and must be extracted. Even then it is brittle and difficult to work, but the work is worth it. This is in part because of Tungsten’s permanence – it has the highest melting point of all the elements – and in part because of its density and shine. So it is with Geoffrey Tungsten, whose voice has been extracted it seems from a great morass, only to arrive as fine and robust as carved stone. And, he comes to us from a carver who is never minimal, but who has learned to make carving symphonic. The result is that by following a trace of beauty we glimpse the magic required to make words tell us the truth, or, as Geoffrey himself puts it, to ‘say wing and hear wing.’ Please treat yourself to this small book with big designs on your clavicytherium heart.”
- Jack Christian, author of Family System

Books, media, The Book of Cannibals, reviews

"Who cleans up after the last bone is sucked dry?" Review of The Book of Cannibals by MWS

In the transgressive tradition of Georges Bataille (and Lev Shestov, Michael Taussig, André Breton, André Masson, Pierre Klossowski, Roger Caillois, Jules Monnerot, Jean Rollin, Jean Wahl) and drawing on Bataille’s fascination with human sacrifice and his founding of Acéphale, a secret society symbolized by a headless man, The Book of Cannibals ... offers us a smorgasbord of surreal mediations on pizza, Hell, solipsism, drones, hipsters, and (the ever-faithful) Death.
