9781926639321: Strangers in Paris

The stunning variety of writing in this anthology addresses the city of Paris in all its complexity, while challenging the mythology of expatriate Parisian literature. Strangers in Paris contains entries as diverse and disparate as an excerpt from John Berger’s novel, Here is Where We Meet; Antonia Alexandra Klimenko's take on a Van Gogh painting; a tongue-in-cheek take on the nineteenth-century novel by Helen Cusack O’Keeffe; a trio of poems by Jorie Graham; Canadian writer Lisa Pasold’s story of a forced extended stay in Paris; and an interview with the celebrated American poet Alice Notley. More than anything, this volume is a landmark, a notice that begs and entices readers to explore the current English-language authorship developing in and about Paris.
