ABOUT 100 Spinning Plates:
"Rob Christopher's 100 SPINNING PLATES is a fascinating exercise in specificity and the economy of language - no word unnecessary, no explanation given where none needed. We experience the author's life through random ordered little snapshots, slices of life which stand individually but add up to much more than their sum. A book of memories, chance observations, sexual encounters, and odd little ironic events, all told with amazing objectivity which allows us to enter into the text like a piece of autobiographical detective fiction, putting together a very private life."
- Greg Allen, Artistic Director, The Neo-Futurists and creator of "Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind"

ABOUT Rob Christopher:
Rob Christopher has lived in Chicago since 1993. His selfpublished "exploded novel" of Random Literature, 100 Spinning Plates, is available online at http://www.randomcha.net as well at fine bookstores like Powell's in Portland and Quimby's. In his spare time he watches far too many movies, mixes up retro cocktails (the Mai Tai being his specialty), and writes more stuff.
