  • They Said: A Multi-Genre Anthology of Contemporary Collaborative Writing

    Simone Muench

    Dean Rader

    Carlos Fuentes argued that the most important literary occasions are those in which “genre” is recirculated. Writing survives—thrives, even—on recirculation and the reconception of genre. The collaborations collected here represent such a change, as important, in their own way, as concretism, found, sound or random poetry. Making the author plural, through joint composition, repositions the work, its voice and its experiential and emotion contexts. The more seamless these collaborations seem—and most do seem seamless—the more radical their gestures. Lyric, discursive, sometimes political these pieces manage their changes in compelling duets.
