MY MAN AND OTHER CRITICAL FICTIONS is an original collection of 8 critical fictions
on Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo, King Lear, Olaudah Equiano, Harry Mathews, and other writers and texts. The critical fiction
is a literary mode that takes as its subject another literary work and treats
of that work’s construction, obsessions, and sources in narrative and poetic, rather than
expository/critical terms. Wendy Walker is one of the chief proponents of the
critical fiction today ; some of her predecessors include Jean Rhys, Jorge Luis Borges, Angela Carter,
and Guy Davenport.
Wendy Walker is author of a modern masterpiece, The Secret Service (1992) ; a work of poetic non-fiction, Blue Fire (Proteotypes, 2009), exploring the case of Constance Kent ; and two collections of short fiction, The Sea-Rabbit, or, The Artist of Life (1988) and Stories out of Omarie (1995). Her website is wendywalker.com.
To celebrate publication of MY MAN & OTHER CRITICAL FICTIONS, Temporary Culture is pleased to convene a Critical Fiction Symposium on Tuesday 25 October 2011 at the Grolier Club in New York City. Participants will include Wendy Walker, Ron Janssen, Jennifer Nelson, John Crowley, and Henry Wessells. Details on the Symposium page.
