Availability: Ready to download

Literary Nonfiction. Fiction. Cross-Genre. "Having conjured up that particular mix of will, heartwreck, and sheer wonder that makes for a large part of the human condition, Gutstein presents it to us through the nuance-rippled glass of his unique vision--a vision at once powerful, canny, restless, and sweeping--in sentences that make of muscularity a haunting new music. De Literary Nonfiction. Fiction. Cross-Genre.

Deadpan poignancy and a fable-like resonance to these 'non-fictions'--a striking debut"--Carl Phillips. "Dan Gutstein is one of the most dangerous writers operating in America today. He bends form, bends language, and bends your ear, making NON/FICTION a book that poets and prosers, alike, can celebrate. May it become the Gold Standard for multi-genre writing"--Kevin Moffett.

    At a certain point in reading fiction I got inured, used to the shape of the plots and was reading to see what happened next as opposed to doing what I could do as a kid which was take a paragraph and visualize it as completely as possible and situate myself within that landscape, letting myself be surprised to the changes that happened. DG cuts away plot in these poetry/fiction/nonfiction vignettes and gives a sturdy sense of place, a definite emotional tenor and then moves forward.

DG cuts away plot in these poetry/fiction/nonfiction vignettes and gives a sturdy sense of place, a definite emotional tenor and then moves forward. Because they are each 3-4 pages you feel "in" them w/o ever getting settled enough to start thinking about where they are going or what they are about. Which is incredibly refreshing given that most stories about adolescence and young adulthood are godawfully heavyhanded. But WTF is this doing on Edge books? Maybe its genrelessness? Anyway...there's a lot of waterstains on this copy now.
