The official description gives a flavor of what to expect: "Emu is a literary cult named after a bird improvised from the spare parts of other birds, a bird that never flies because flying is a cliché. EMU is HE IS ME AND I AM YOU spoken at the speed of light. EMU is literature's barbershop, where Dadaism, Surrealism, L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E get their weltanschauung trimmed and catch up on the latest sports gossip. The Emu Dialogues is a book for anyone who was ever asked the question: 'why is an Orange?' and answered 'because ice cream has no bones!'"
