A new collection by one of the founding writers and theorists of the literary movement known as New Narrative

Bruce Boone is a critical figure at the crossroads of late twentieth-century avant-garde and social movement writing. Dismembered is the long overdue collection that spans nearly five decades of Boone’s life, from the early 1970s to the present. Collecting published and fugitive works alike, from poems and narratives to reviews and essays, this volume is crucial for anyone moved by writing that is at once sexy and political, gossipy and militant, scholarly and aesthetic.

Praise for Bruce Boone:
“Bruce Boone has the perfect cadence of a real writer, part awe, part critique. He can see.” —Peter Gizzi
