From a Broken Bottle Traces of Perfume Still Emanate: Volumes 1-3 collects the first three installments Bedouin Hornbook, Djbot Baghostus s Run, and Atet A.D. of Nathaniel Mackey s genre-defying work of fiction. A project that began over thirty years ago, From a Broken Bottle is an epistolary novel that unfolds through N. s intricate letters to the mysterious Angel of Dust. Unexpected, profound happenings take place as N. delves into music and art and the goings-on of his transmorphic Los Angeles-based jazz ensemble, in which he is a composer and instrumentalist. This triple-set book opens in July 1978 with a dream of a haunting Archie Shepp solo, and closes in September 1982 in a parallactic studio recording session on a glass-bottomed boat borne aloft by the music. The fourth volume of Mackey s novel, Bass Cathedral also available from New Directions was chosen by The New York Times as one of 100 Notable Books of 2008. But that it didn t end there
