Transistor is a work of experimental fiction in the mystical tradition of Dante’s Divine Comedy and St. John of the Cross’s Dark Night of the Soul. The text is designed in a semi-linear narrative that charts the protagonist’s spiritual progress as he attempts to communicate with a divine power. In a post-apocalyptic, industrialized wasteland, the protagonist constructs machinery as proxy devices to enable his interaction, transformation, and ultimate apotheosis. The work is a collage of prose, poetry, image and diagram—an experiment in form as a means of exploring linguistic phenomena outside the standard deviation of written and spoken language.
