Pop artist Milo Sonas was a New York City art world star in the 80s and 90s. After 9/11, a nervous breakdown and years of obscurity, Milo now finds himself sheltered in a government subsidized motel room in the Midwest, wandering in the streets, coffee shops and shopping malls in the afternoons, and experiencing frequent supernatural visitations from famous dead artists.When Milo is suddenly rediscovered by a former collector, his fortunes start to shift. His reemergence from obscurity is underway. However, first he must deal with his eccentric family members, plan his dying mother's funeral (that she intends to attend) and his own wedding to a University coed, all in the same afternoon. Will Milo escape the drone of suburbia, and stop fearing that art history would rather see him dead, before he is allowed to feel, touch and taste success?Jenson's tour de force written with a unique new voice, will also please those familiar with Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Philip Jose Farmer. Readers will be taken on a hilarious, sensual, heartfelt ride. Dead Artist features riotous stream-of-consciousness and time shifting literary riffs. In this high energy novel Pop art icon, poet and author Ivan Jenson creates a vivid portrait of an artist as a post-modern man.
