Bard College, 2006 - Fiction - 451 pages
In its first issue, published a quarter of a century ago, Conjunctions established itself immediately as a major journal of international literary arts, with contributors including Paul Bowles, Tennessee Williams, Octavio Paz, Denise Levertov and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Over the ensuing years, it has remained at the forefront, publishing writing by then-unknowns William T. Vollmann, David Foster Wallace, Rick Moody, Mary Caponegro and Jonathan Safran Foer. This special Twenty-fifth Anniversary Issue continues the work at which Conjunctions is unparalleled: discovering tomorrow's literary giants while keeping readers abreast of new work by the most important, edgy and distinguished voices of the day. This issue showcases new fiction, poetry and essays by such luminaries as Jonathan Lethem, Jim Crace, William H. Gass, Robert Coover, John Ashbery, Ann Lauterbach, Thalia Field, John Barth, Rikki Ducornet, Joyce Carol Oates, C. D. Wright, Peter Straub, Shelley Jackson, Richard Powers, David Shields, Lydia Davis, Rick Moody, Marjorie Welish and Jorie Graham, along with a number of surprise guest writers. As the first issue of Conjunctions defined the fiction and poetry that came to dominate the last 25 years, so this issue will become an indispensable handbook for our literary future.
