Summary
Praise for Barbara Browning: "A provocative novel . . . that blurs the boundaries between life and performance, dance, art, and viral video."-- Slate "Deftly blending highbrow intellectual concerns with the informality of Facebook-era communiqu#65533;s, Browning's newest is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking."-- Publishers Weekly , starred review In the midst of Occupy, Barbara Andersen begins spamming people indiscriminately with ukulele covers of sentimental songs. A series of inappropriate intimacies ensues, including an erotically charged correspondence and then collaboration with an extraordinarily gifted and troubled musician living in Germany. Barbara Browning teaches in the Department of Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts, NYU. She received her PhD in Comparative Literature from Yale University. She is the author of the novels The Correspondence Artist (winner of a Lambda Literary Award) and I'm Trying to Reach You (short-listed for The Believer Book Award). She also makes dances, poems, and ukulele cover tunes
