Well-respected throughout his career, Douglas Woolf created some of the most startlingly original works of the twentieth century. The two novels collected here create a dreamlike vision of America where helplessness prevails and the actions of the sane seem tinged with madness. Ya! takes place during the Christmas reunion of a penniless novelist and his teenage daughter at the nightmarish home of a super-American family. John-Juan begins with an amnesiac who finds himself in a Mexican border town wearing only his pyjamas and watch, before becoming part of a surreal and somewhat frightening community organised around "runners" that collect trash along the highways. Together, these novels provide an unparalleled glimpse into the world of this unique author who strove to capture the madness at the edges of everyday life.
