Writer and poet Ben Watson wrote "Frank Zappa - The Negative Dialectics Of Poodle Play", a book that got released by Quartet Books in 1995.

More recently, Ben published a collection of poems in "Smooch Tentet Resolve'. Great stuff. A combination of words and drawings. Ben explained at the Zappanale festival a couple of years ago that you don't just have to read the words. The drawings make noises as well.

On http://www.archive.org/details/smoochtentetresolve , you can hear Ben Watson reading from this book, as taken from his "Out To Lunch" radio show.
You really have to hear this.
