"Weaving between theoretical speculations, reports of actual classroom usage, polemical addresses, and a rich web of allusions, Of Two Minds strongly makes the case that hypertext creates a topography of textuality that requires new modes of thinking about texts" -- N. Katherine Hayles, UCLA

A new, paper novel by Michael Joyce, the author of classic hypertexts afternoon, a story and Twilight, a Symphony.

This weekend, Liam's going away to college and his mother is taking him there. For Liam, impatience to arrive at a new destination rubs against the anxiety of a future apart. For his mother, the trip has a second purpose: a long-suppressed love affair has resurfaced in a poem she is trying to write.

"Michael Joyce is a subliminal explorer -- he sets off to explore regions that are generally neglected, as if they were forests or deserted islans." -- Hélène Cixous
