The Wide Road cover1 The Wide Road cover2

Creative Writing professor Carla Harryman, together with Lyn Hejinian, recently celebrated the release of The Wide Road, a collaborative work by the pair, roughly 20 years in the making.  Here’s the official blurb from Belladonna Books:

What would have happened…had Thelma and Louise not driven off the cliff but stayed on the road? In Carla Harryman and Lyn Hejinian’s picaresque novella, friendship lives on to follow eros through a polymorphic landscape where their fearless, inquisitive “we” encounters “hunger in two places at once.”

The Wide Road was collaboratively composed by Carla Harryman and Lyn Hejinian between 1991 and 2010. The cover art was drawn for this manuscript by the artist Nancy Blum, and the first edition is printed with two different cover designs.

The Wide Road pre-release date was December 1, 2010. The official release date is March 15, 2011. Find out more at:
