IN01: 2009: UNCAGE ME

DESCRIPTION
Edited by Jen Jordan.
UNCAGE ME  was released by Bleak House Books. The anthology contains twenty-two stories and is a follow up to the 2007 anthology, EXPLETIVE DELETED.

Irish author John Connolly provides a very insightful Introduction. He points out that boundaries and limitations are meant to be challenged and in this anthology twenty-two authors give us their boundary-smashing best. Connolly writes, “It has been argued that one of the roles of art is to break taboos, which brings with it the assumption that such taboo breaking is always good . . . Yet not all restrictions are necessarily bad in themselves, just as not every act of transgression is worthy of note simply by the fact of its existence.”
