Synopsis

Prize-winning poet and hypertext pioneer Stephanie Strickland pushes the boundaries of the printed word to create a completely original poetic experience.

An extraordinary work that is meant to be glimpsed and scanned and begun again, V pulses with many orders of knowledge, organization, and rhythm.
