The Clear Cut Future: An Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a tool for the future, which is here. You can use it. It has words, pictures, and other information. The book is portable and durable. If you leave the area it will still be useful. There are many other places like this one. The book might help you recognize them. The future has preoccupations and it has trajectories. The book maps these conditions. Men and women, as we know them, will no longer be the same. Your job may become strange. Some possibilities will blossom as others collapse. The language of the future is more beautiful than we know.

Synopsis:

This anthology maps the territory of interest to Clear Cut Press, more or less. It includes fiction, memoir, poetry, polemical essays, lyrical research, archival texts, photography, painting, and other arts. Among the contributors are Stacey Levine, Charles D'Ambrosio, Steve Weiner, Emily White, Rebecca Brown, Robert Glück, Pravin Jain (a former Enron executive), Casey Sanchez (a fish slimer), Wouter Vanstiphout (winner of the 2002 Masskant Prize for young architects), photographers Robert Adams and Ari Marcopoulus, painter Mike Brophy, many widely published authors, and others whom you'll know well in the future. Matt Briggs provides a specially commissioned index.

Synopsis:

Cultural Writing. This collection of fiction, poetry and essays from the new Clear Cut Press, compiles the work of writers Clear Cut Press has or plans to publish, providing a map of their direction and vision for the future. The book is "portable and durable. If you leave the area it will still be useful. There are many other places like this one. The book might help you recognize them. The future has preoccupations and it has trajectories. The book maps these conditions... Some possibilities will blossom as others collapse. The language of the future is more beautiful than we know"--from the inside flap.
