Overview

Strangers in Paris documents a restless encountering of new English-language writing in the most mythologized literary city in the world. Is Paris now only a residual city of prescribed epiphanies? Strangers in Paris brings together a selection of remarkably original writers of fiction and poetry-including John Berger, Jorie Graham, Cole Swensen, Alice Notley, and an exciting collection of young emerging voices-who illustrate a Paris unbound, personified, Homeric, and even digressive. It is a museum of experiences and objects that is anything but iconic; the anthology establishes a new hunt for language worthy of a changing city. It is possible to find Paris in these pages, but it is just as possible to find everything else.
