works of aphoristic illumination



The Effort to Fall, 1998 (Green Integer Books)



The Effort to Fall forces into the light of day all of injustice of the world, all of the horror of life, all of the hidden motives and masked corruption of the human heart. But it performs this delicate operation of revelation with such graceful lightness and subtle humor that the reader, instead of feeling depressed by his own inescapable predicament, or enraged by the nature of a reality he cannot change, feels mirifically released from all care.




The Comedy of Agony, 2006 (Leaping Dog Press).


Through the alchemical magic of his marvelous prose, Spranger somehow manages to transform the inferno of human suffering into a luminous paradise of pure literary delight.
