call for innovative books to review

In my new role as one of the associate editors at American Book Review, I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for significant just-published or (better yet) about-to-be-published innovative fiction, poetry, theory, and hybrid texts that should be reviewed in ABR.

If you ever know of one—by beginning or established authors, by yourself or others, from independent presses or corporate, in digital or dead-tree format—would you please email me (lmo AT lanceolsen DOT com) with an announcement that includes author, title, publisher, brief description, publication date, and contact information?

And if you're a publisher, would you please add me to your emailing list?

Many thanks, and please pass the meme.

Is ABR's physical address still the same?

Review copies should go to:

I just received a book Avant-Post: The Avant-Garde under "Post-" Conditions, that looks really interesting. Edited by Louis Armand, it has a number of highlights: an essays by Rachel Blau DuPlessis, R.M. Berry, Johanna Drucker, and a number of others that take up the question of whether there can be an avant-g. in the age of postmodernism. Or, and here is my interpretation, can there be experimental writing and if so, what does it look like.
