The Paris Review - Baxter Week

To celebrate the release of Glen Baxter’s new publication Almost Completely Baxter: New and Selected Blurtings, The Paris Review is running two of his illustrations every day this week. Almost Completely Baxter spans four decades of “Colonel” Baxter’s work, drawing from such books as The Billiard Table Murders and Blizzards of Tweed. “Baxter’s comic realm—the space between image and text, between perplexity and the mundane—is a locale where uncertainty emerges as weird and weirdness recedes into uncertainty,” Albert Mobilio wrote recently in Bookforum. Baxter’s short stories appeared in The Paris Review’s Winter 1972 issue. A portfolio, “It Was the Smallest Pizza They Had Ever Seen” followed in Summer 1985.
