A unique and compelling collection of narrative essays by young(ish) Amercian authors that runs the gamut on form and content
This collection of 21 narrative essays by 11 authors is a miscellany of topic and theme: from tattoos to addiction to spinning vinyl to ice fishing; from navigating the streets of Saigon to sexual assault to battling mental illness to living with death. The montage of content is held together by a distinct “voice,” a voice that occupies that space beyond the customary and the commonplace in society, a voice from the fringe giving utterance to outsider’s experience. Miscellany brings together the sensibilities, experiences, and the aesthetic of young(ish) American essayists in a truly singular voice.
These essays occupy the dangerous spaces between tale and rant, between song and scream, between meditation and meltdown. Miscellany offers readers a thrilling ride along the ragged edges of American culture.
