Twilight of the Bums is a collaborative collection of 85 microfictions by GEORGE CHAMBERS and RAYMOND FEDERMAN, wildly cartooned throughout by artist T.MOTLEY. FEDERMAN is 80 years old, CHAMBERS 77, and the book is CHAMBERS's 5th and FEDERMAN's 56th! (according to him, but he s a noted liar). Both are long-time experimental fictionists Federman's work being known worldwide and translated in 14 languages. Together, the two old geezers, um, literary legends make THE TWILIGHT OF THE BUMS a multi-layered send-up of buddy-fictions from Waiting for Godot on down, at turns tender, hilarious, iconoclastic, and maddening. THE TWILIGHT OF THE BUMS is exemplary of the lettres de m-rde style Federman has designated LAUGHTERATURE.
