An annual anthology of the best new experimental writing

BAX 2016: Best American Experimental Writing is the third volume of this annual literary anthology compiling the best experimental writing in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. This year’s volume, guest-edited by Charles Bernstein and Tracie Morris, features seventy-five works by some of the most exciting American poets and writers today, including established authors—like Sina Queyras, Tan Lin, Christian Bök, Myung Mi Kim, Juliana Spahr, Samuel R. Delany, and even Barack Obama—as well as emerging voices. Intended to provoke lively conversation and debate, Best American Experimental Writing is an ideal literary anthology for contemporary classroom settings.

Reviews / Endorsements

“What an astonishing collection! BAX 2016 goes there and rassles back an orchard of trap doors, sidewinding Up-escalators, and statuaries of agitated calculations. What binds this vital assemblage is discontent: not just with what writing and editing do, but with what living drives us to write.” Douglas Kearney, BAX 2015 guest editor
