Copy Press and PEER are delighted to present Ha-Ha Crystal, a 100-page paperback of new essays by Chris Fite-Wassilak.

Written with ease and adventure, the essays within Ha-Ha Crystal have the reader moving from tetrahedrons, through comic books to the architecture of John Portman and the films of Jacque Tati.  As a host of things are put into contact with each other, thought takes shape and becomes crystalline. 

‘Chris Fite-Wassilak writes like memory works. His essays move fluidly from one topic to another in cognitive association, but with a consistent rigour and tempo. Read his work and you’ll travel down a path without knowing which turns you’ve taken, only to find it was the only possible route, and you’re right where you should be.’  – Adam Kaasa
