Come Off It, Chris Offutt
Posted by: Keir Graff

Actually, this is quite funny, but I was stuck for a headline. Harper’s picked up ”Excerpt from The Offutt Guide to Literary Terms” from last fall’s Seneca Review. Well worth a glance:

prose poem: Either a poem with no line breaks or a lyric essay with no indentation. No one knows.

deconstructionism: A moderately successful attempt by the French to avenge the loss of Paris as the global center of literature.

Read Donna Seaman’s review of Offutt’s No Heroes: A Memoir of Coming Home (2002).
