The 3:15 EXPERIMENT comprises the results of an experiment in which the four authors rose at 3:15 A.M. every day in the month of August from the years 1993-2000 and wrote. Some poems, some prose, some dream-drenched euphoric scrawl, some devine journaling recording the weird magic of that middle hour. "In 1994...I was awake at 3:15 almost every night all August. This writing-by-alarm is one out of a large -- infinite? -- bag of tricks. The self outside the self. To get ourselves to pay attention differently, unawares" -- Jen Hofer. "The book is full of marvelous 'good times' as well -- with language, zones, emotions & political conventions... -- the stuff & dross & excitement of existing experimentally in the minds of four exceptional writers" -- Anne Waldman.
