The Underground Literary Alliance is too radical to be covered by the mainstream media in this country. We received mucho coverage at the start-- this was halted when the literary establishment realized we weren't just playing like so many others; that we believed what we said. (An unknown concept in the higher levels of society.)
Maybe we'll have to go overseas to break the blackballing. We know this blog is being read in Somaliland, for one thing. I say, the next ULA show should be in Somaliland!
Apparently folks are also watching our activities-- which are historic and relevant after all-- in the United Kingdom. We were presented by the Guardian as new upstarts, along with the n+1 crowd, as major competitors to the McSweeney's outfit. (You know them: Church of the Undead.) This when describing literary activity on this side of the Atlantic. Imagine! No wonder the ruthless Eggers Gang wants to destroy us.
I now say: Next ULA show should be in London!
