Item description for A Box of Dreams: Original Trade Paper by David Madsen...

The id is out of its box and scampering all over this often hilarious and surreally distrubing gothic romp. The narrator wakes from a dream of sexual assault on a train--or was it' Finding himself in a bewildering Mitteleuropa, he is counselled by a bogus Dr. Freud and embroiled in the irrational doings of a malodorous ticket inspector, a sadistic valet, a lascivious count and his luscious daughter. He is also confined to a velveteen skirt and taken for an authority on yodelling. Madsen has his favorite themes -- food, sex and Catholics -- and here adds psychoanalysis to the mix, as the hero struggles for self-knowledge. He sidles from dream to dream, and wakes to find his consciousness drooling again.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Box of Dreams: Original Trade Paper?

Kafka meets Rabelais on a train   Oct 6, 2006
Imagine to find yourself on a train with a sadistic guard and a psychiatrist called Dr. Freud who is NOT the founder of Psychoanalysis, but a slightly unbalanced homonymous; imagine going in a castle that's not a castle, where you're supposed to give a lecture on a zany subject of wich you know nothing; imagine havbing your lecture interrupted by ferocious carnivorous cows. This is unquestionably the most weird and loopy (in many senses) novel of the mysterious Madsen, having something in common with Delany's Dhalgren.
