In wildly comical reenactments of incidents from his curious life, his part will be played by an actor. With audacious literary sleight of hand, he will put words into the mouths of those who knew him. Clues will be sought in artistic blow-outs from the history of all the arts. And all the major players, even down to Monty the dog, will get their own daily strip and Sunday page in yellowed newspaper sections from an imaginary long ago.
In this creative mining of the rich resources of the comic strip language Campbell will give us a complex meditation on the lonely demands of art amid the realities of everyday life.
