The Invention of Violence

Robert Creeley
Gunnís art is close to the film makerís, or the composerís, in that the structure of his narrative is always its most significant element. How things follow, how they are located in that passage, constitutes the complex music, or vision, of his exemplary tales.
Toby Olson
I know of no other recent writer whose language has captured the world with such authenticity. Reading Douglas Gunnís fiction, I think of John Berger on Van Gogh: ďWherever he looked he saw the labour of existence; and this labour, recognized as such, for him constituted reality."
