I am not really specially interested in dada. It's an old and outdated art movement, of which very little, if any, was first-rate. Surrealism would have been better if it weren't so boring, and serious. The Wild Dada Ducks, my characters in the books think they're interested in dada, but pretty much completely misunderstand it. In DEAD END DADA they misunderstand Zen, and in THE DADA BOYS IN COLLITCH they misunderstand everything. My use of dada is a literary device, not an exposition, nor endorsement, of that movement. I have never heard of the Damned. I am not, and have never been, a member of the Anarchist Party.
