RE:TELLING is an anthology of stories, poetry, and art edited by William Walsh, built around recycled material: purloined plots, stolen settings, appropriated characters, and borrowed premises featuring work by some of the independent publishing world’s favourite, most talented writers. Michael Martone traces the traces of Borges in Indiana and Matt Bell wonders what Mario thinks between re-sets, Joseph Riippi takes German lit personally, and Kathleen Rooney & Lily Hoang spin a love triangle of Biblical proportions. Also featuring work from Michael Kimball, Jim Ruland, Samantha Hunt, and Pedro Ponce, RE:TELLING is an homage, a subversion where nothing is off-limits. Whether it’s Shakespeare or Law and Order, children’s stories or yesteryear’s sitcoms, each piece is a fresh ransacking of our cultural troves, recreated, and made new.
We’re launching this 300-page rocket of awesome at AWP 2011 in DC and are looking for help offsetting print costs. With such a great collection, standards rise, and so does the printer’s bill. We want beautiful covers, we want sexy paper, we want the art in full-colour. Deep down inside, so do you.
