About this book

Using the idea of 'parability,'or the ability for writers to tell improper stories, as a foundation, Alan Ramón Clinton synthesizes a new model for a creative, more daring literary criticism. Sharp and surprising, this wide-ranging project engages with the work of Pynchon, Eco, Forché, Merrill, Weiner, Plath, Ashbery, and Eigner.
