    Ah the Russian Futurists One of my most favorite ridiculous art movements Mayakovsky's balls in your face poetry Khlebnikov's just out there weirdness What isn't there to love?This isn't a bad book about the Russian Futurists It's value lies in its being one of the first great repositories and reference sources for Futurist publications featuring a lot of artists that the lay Russian Futurist fan such as myself had never even been aware ofWhere the book fails is in actually giving you the nitty gritty Sure there's a reasonably informative paint by the numbers chronology mostly centered on the publication of manifestoes and what not and a decent amount of exploring what these zany guys and gals were up to but the book is woefully thin on examples which sucks since it's mostly focused on literature especially poetryA lot of weight is given to Mayakovsky and Khlebby but there's some good bits on the Burliuks Kruchenykh Aksenov Pasternak and others There's little on the visual arts and next to nothing about futuristic music which is a shame because that's where the Russians really shoneLong on detail thin on digging vomit fingers into the mouth of futurism pulling its teeth back like pregnant sharks and aerovaulting into the maw of what the hell
