This virtual gallery is a collaborative offshoot of the novel, Galerie de Difformité, winner of the 2010 Madeleine P. Plonsker Emerging Writer’s Prize from Lake Forest College and &NOW Books, also voted a Nobbie Best Book of 2011. The book can be ordered through Northwestern University Press.
Within “Exhibit” links, grateful acknowledgment is made to each journal where the work first appeared, including The Kenyon Review, KR Online, Double Room, Black Warrior Review, Mantis: a journal of poetry & translation, Witness, American Letters & Commentary, Exquisite Corpse Annual, The Laurel Review, Drunken Boat, and New American Writing. Further selections from the Galerie de Difformité can be found in Notre Dame Review, Caketrain (Pushcart Prize nomination), The Collagist, and in the anthologies The &NOW Awards: The Best Innovative Writing, Beauty is a Verb, and An Oulipolooza. The book was exhibited in a national juried competition sponsored by the College Book Arts Association called “BiblioTech” at the San Francisco Public Library (January 5, 2012 – March 11, 2012), also featured in the Five Colleges exhibition of “Pulp to Pixels: Artists Books Respond to E-Books” at Hampshire College, MA (November 5-16, 2012), and is popping up in other grassroots exhibitions.
This project would be nothing without the marvelous & multi-dimensional deformations contributed by Subscribers. My sincerest thanks to all who have participated in the past, present, & future deformation of the Galerie de Difformité.
Other hybrid books by the Author (not related to said Galerie de Difformité — although is anything truly separate?) include The House Enters the Street (a modulating novel), On Marvellous Things Heard (a lyric essay exploring literary appropriations of music and silence), and Wreckage: By Land & By Sea (a cartographic poetry chapbook).
