The attention in The Guardian was great because it validated what we already know: the Underground Literary Alliance is the coming literary movement. Right now we're stepping on too many toes for U.S. literati to acknowledge us-- but no one can stand forever against the flow of history, which we represent.
Who'll replace the pretentious insularity of the Eggers-led Church of the Undead? The ULA or n+1?
The n+1'ers are themselves too much of the status quo to represent much of a difference. The ULA is far broader based. This will be seen at Sunday's Philadelphia show. The creme de la creme of the underground are gathering for the event, from all over the country. Just added to the card: mail art maestro "Experimental Writer" Mark Sonnenfeld.
