Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. JE SUIS L'AUTRE: ESSAYS AND INTERROGATIONS, is a collection of lyric criticism that speaks to a rapidly changing literary landscape, with elements of personal narrative, craft analysis, and cultural commentary. By offering a hybrid approach to scholarly writing, Darling's prose establishes a poetic sensibility as it examines a wide range of recent experimental and collaborative works of literature. The diverse texts discussed in this essay collection include Julie Marie Wade's Wishbone, Sarah Manguso's The Guardians, G.C. Waldrep and John Gallaher's Your Father On The Train Of Ghosts, Anne Boyer's GARMENTS AGAINST WOMEN, Suzanne Scanlon's HER 37TH YEAR: AN INDEX, and many others. Throughout Darling's book, recent works of literature offer a point of entry to more ambitious questions about voice, affect, and conscious experience.
