BOOK REVIEWS
The curse of youth from each generation is to believe that they invented "cool." If you are 24 years or under right now, you probably believe this.

But the truth is you invented nothing. You were invented. Every band you love, every poem you write, every magazine picture you dwell on, was shaped by your great-grandfather. His name was Tristan Tzara.

Fortunately for you, Eric v.d. Luft (your distant uncle) has remembered your great-grandfather's play, The Gas Heart. He has translated the play gorgeously; all you have to do is read it to understand where you come from, how you were invented.

-- Robert A. Varisco, author of several articles on Tristan Tzara
