Revolution: A Reader (2012)
“With a conversation between Lisa Robertson and Matthew Stadler as a guiding force through the book, this vast collection of texts spanning from 1790–2007, is a call for thinking about collective change and to remember that the revolution is already happening.
Reaching from Edward Said writing about Jean Genet, to Genet writing a play on a balcony, to Sulamith Firestone and Kathy Acker, this book is as perfect to find new texts you’ve never read, to text that you want to revisit. Altogether, these layers of different genres of texts make this reader an outstanding tool for thinking with and about literature, coexistence and revolution.”
