Prose, poetry, drama of living American writers. Current cultural and social issues.

To economic crisis? To environmental fears? How have writers pioneered new literary forms or repurposed old forms for new purposes? Writers we might read include Helen DeWitt, Ling Ma, Ottessa Moshfegh, Eugene Lim, Ben Lerner, and John Keene, and Valeria Luiselli.
