"Keith O' Shaughnessy has composed Incommunicado with extraordinary thoroughness . Sensuous images, swelling images, and haunting recurrences are here organized into a set of varied patterns at once intricate, gorgeous and rigid. Incommunicado arranges its paradoxical shards -art, appetitie, beauty, decay-into a lush and austere design. I know of no book like it."
