Unleashed by Sina Queyras
Department of Critical Thought No. 2
Experience a little time travel as BookThug presents our final book of the 2009 year. You can also experience a little time travel reading the book itself, as you follow Queyras for four years of her experiment in thinking about literature & art via her blog. Started for many reasons -- a way for an expat to keep in touch with fellow writers and artists, a way to come to terms with the increasing relevance of the Internet in literary lives, and a way to figure out why, after decades of gains, women writers are still grossly under-represented in critical dialogues -- the blog allowed Queyras to take up a public space and voice that does something to one's brain. There is no getting away from the space she created "out there" -- now Unleashed.
Copies are available for purchase directly from BookThug.
Or visit your favourite independent bookseller.
Delays, delays, but it's "here"...not in my hand yet, but there is the physical fact of a book in other hands. Human ones, that can crack the spine and see, not code but readable text. Oh, and images.
I've always wanted to do a book with images.
