Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The events of September 11, 2001, their myriad repercussions, and our varied and often contradictory responses to them have inspired this collection of West Coast writers’ responses to the terrorist acts. By virtue of history and geographic distance, the West Coast has developed a community different from that of the East, but ultimately our shared interests bridge the distinctions in provocative and heartening ways. Following is a list of the contributors:

Diana Abu-Jaber, Etel Adnan, T.C. Boyle, Susie Bright, Michael Byers, Tom Clark, Joshua Clover, Wanda Coleman, Peter Coyote, John Daniel, Harlan Ellison, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Amy Gerstler, Lawrence Grobel, Ehud Havazelet, Michael Hood, Ken Kesey, Maxine Hong Kingston, Jennifer Lauck, Stacey Levine, Genny Lim, Beth Lisick, Alejandro Morales, Jessica Maxwell, Colleen McElroy, Jess Mowry, Ishmael Reed, Vern Rutsala, Floyd Salas, Tom Spanbauer, Primus St. John, Barbara Earl Thomas, Sallie Tisdale, Alice Walker.
