VAS - An Opera in Flatland by Steve Tomasula
Book DescriptionVAS combines a variety of voices, from journalism and libretto to poem and comic book. Often these voices meet in counterpoint, and the meaning of the narrative emerges from their juxtapositions, harmonies, or discords. Using a wide and historical sweep of representations of the body - from pedigree charts to genetic sequences - VAS is, finally, the story of finding one's identity within the double helix of language and lineage.

Books By Author Steve Tomasula
Once Human, Paperback (March 2014)
A manga artist who is afraid that she herself is slipping into a cartoon version of life, a lab technician who makes art with the cloning technology she uses at work, a sociologist hunting for the gene that makes some people want to take risks - these are some of the characters that populate the stories in Once Human.
IN & OZ, Paperback (May 2012)
A novel of art, love, and auto mechanics. It follows five different characters - an auto designer, photographer, musical composer, poet/sculptor, and mechanic - who live in two very different places: IN, a back-alley here and now; and OZ, which reflects the desire for somewhere better.
Book of Portraiture, Paperback (March 2006)
A desert nomad struggles at the close of the ancient world to inscribe himself into life, and centuries later a Renaissance artist attempts to overcome his lowly origins by painting nobility. This is a novel about the irrepressible impulse to picture ourselves, and about how, through this picturing, we re-create what it means to be human.
In and Oz, Hardback (September 2003)» View all books by Steve Tomasula
A novel of art, love, auto mechanics, and two places: the actualities of the here and now and the desire for somewhere better.
