"A fever dream that defies genre, gauguin's notebook is an affidavit composed from survival zones of life in the precariat."—Roberto Tejada

"This book suggests that, despite centuries of dismaying results, humans persist, at the barricades, at the easel, and on the message boards, in trying to will into being an intervention in our own murderous eventualities." —Joyelle McSweeney

"Christopher Rey Pérez's gauguin's notebook is also a flight into the wires of being that thing while hiding other shapes of things."—Anselm Berrigan
