TWO NOVELS: HOwl Revisited and Green Detectives

by Mike Corrao


Two Novels is a manifestation of loss and confusion, constructed in its own textual landscape. Within these new works by visionary author Mike Corrao, readers will interact with something complex and ever-changing.

After a failed relationship with Allen Ginsberg, the poet begins to drift away from reality. He suffers from strange mutations and various stigmata. Soon, it becomes near impossible to distinguish between what is real and what is fabricated.

Within Green Detectives, the reader will experience: Greek Titans coming back to life; fake poets hoping to disappear; private investigators analyzing the unconscious; nervous dinner speeches being made; summonings of Goya’s black paintings; and, a series of other mysteries that surface after the arrival of two xenobiologists in Minneapolis.


Mike Corrao is the author of Man, Oh Man (Orson's Publishing, 2018) and Gut Text (11:11 Press, 2019). His work has been featured in publications such as Entropy, Always Crashing, and The Portland Review. He lives in Minneapolis where he earned his B.A. in film and English literature at the University of Minnesota. Learn more at
