What a fabulous thing it is to have an anthology that's also a gorgeous art object. There's nothing else like this right now. And it's amazing to me how, even in troubling times, these poems, stories, essays, (imaginary) reviews, photographs and audiopoems register as promising and heartening signs of the indomitable vigor of contemporary writing at its best. I mean that the form feels so right, as if the strength in diversity has busted loose all binding constraints.
