About this title


The "Yearbook" is an anthology which takes its inspiration from classic publications like "New Directions" and the "Evergreen Review". It gives readers a unique opportunity to sample challenging experimental writing of the international avant-garde, too often lost in small magazines, samizdat and the smokes of controversy. The "Yearbook"'s goal is to draw on writing from many lands, perspectives and schools- the only outright exclusion being the mainstream, familiar and expected. In addition to contemporary work (Michael Palmer is the focal figure in the first issue) the book recovers neglected writing from the past by Gertrude Stein, Raymond Roussel, Louis Aragon, Pierre Reverdy and others. "Exact Change" is a leading American avant-garde publishing house.

From Library Journal:

This essential new annual goes its acknowledged predecessor one better, offering experimental writing that makes the now-defunct New Directions annual seem staid. Its mainstay is not individual writers but contemporary international movements; encasing chapbook-length compilations within forewords and afterwords, it sets unfamiliar texts in a welcome perspective. Regardless of nationality, these writers apply linguistic innovation in the service of political challenge. Fiction, interviews, criticism, and undefinable genres are seen within poetry's constructs. The American contemporaries represented here include Clark Coolidge, Susan Howe, and John Wieners, and obscure selections from writers who have influenced those on today's fringe (e.g., notes De Chirico scribbled in an exhibition catalog, transcripts of John Cage/Morton Feldman radio conversations) are especially valuable. This yearbook is listed as the "Michael Palmer issue" and is intended to be shelved under his name, but the reasons for this seem arbitrary and ill conceived. With an audio CD; recommended for public and academic libraries.
