    Iconic poet-artist of the Swedish post-war avant-garde, Âke Hodell tells the story of his artistic journey through the absurd, satirical, tour-de-force that is ‘The Marathon Poet,’ originally published in 1981 and now available for the first time in a facsimile-style English translation. Hodell’s book is centered around a fictional race between poets, in which our author-protagonist becomes the sole qualifier after some fitness and alcohol tests. The narrative of the race is intersected by apocryphal origin stories of Hodell’s earlier works that freely blur fact and fiction, taking us even as far as Hell to find a publisher for one of his books.
