I have to admit that I am not educated in the classics or Decadent literature. But I can see that this book is a labour of love. The author has collected together information from every possible source and has explored many new and different paths of enquiry. He is not an armchair author, but has actually visited many of the places and contacted people and sources attributed with Bruno Schultz.

Muse & Messiah is the first full comparative study of the Polish-Jewish writer and artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), based on the latest materials, including new interviews with ex-students and biographers, Polish texts, plus all worldwide English studies and influenced works. Rare photographs, detailed chronology, and recent images are included for comparison. Schulz's life and themes are examined with detailed Polish and European influences. New, first-hand corrected information about his home region adds a new dimension to his creative world within contemporary Polish-Jewish tensions. Controversial international debates about his last works are brought up to date in a work that seeks to place his poetic-artistic achievement more centrally to highlight an original, modernist and yet universal vision. Reviews: 'An interdisciplinary study of dazzling scholarship, Muse & Messiah with its wide-ranging references, allusions, associations, and citations is a true compendium of learning and speculation. By placing Schulz in the many different contexts that shaped his life and work Banks is able to find links, parallels, analogues and interconnections that are often unexpected and surprising, and always rich in complex meaning. Yet, Banks argues in his horizon-broadening interpretation, Schulz cannot be confined to any set of contexts, and, like Blake and Yeats, is ultimately a poet who exists in his own self-created mythic world.' Professor Daniel Gerould (The Graduate Center, CUNY) 'Fans of lost Mitteleuropa, take note: InkerMen Press continues its Hoffmannesque list with an ambitious study of Bruno Schulz's life and work that teases out some universal literary threads from the Polish Jewish writer's private and idiosyncratic cosmos.' Victoria Nelson, author of The Secret Life of Puppets 'Brian Banks, in his new book, shows us a Bruno Schulz that was not known before. He reveals the unknown details of the writer's life with a true detective's passion. The rare ability of detailed interpretation and author's erudition lets us discover the mystery of Schulz's hermetic fiction. It will be enjoyed by both devoted Schulz's readers and those who have yet to encounter his work. This book will be a great source of information for everyone interested in the life and work of the author of Cinnamon Shops.' Tomasz Mackiewicz (Warsaw University) About the Author: Brian R. Banks began writing as a prelude to living on the London streets, in the Francis Thompson rather than Orwellian mode. Huysmans' A Rebours focused a five-year study of that author's life at the British Museum aided by transcripted notebooks and the generous help of Professor Colin Burns. Occasional articles, reviews and two private poetry collections were published, then The Image of J.-K. Huysmans (1990, New York). This period coincided with the finding of a true muse and running a bookshop. A few years later Muse & Messiah: The Life, Imagination & Legacy of Bruno Schulz was written, in tandem with a book of essays, aided not by grants but personal assistance given without financial interest in Poland, Ukraine, and Czech Republic. The author currently lives somewhere in Central Europe.
