AS I STAND LIVING BOOK RELEASE: ZOË RUIZ / BRIAN EVENSON / CHRISTOPHER HIGGS




In his radical memoir, As I Stand Living, Christopher Higgs uses the constraint-based techniques William Faulkner employed for the construction of As I Lay Dying to create a deeply personal and philosophical portrait of the year he became a father. Blending elements of fantasy and confession, Higgs confronts parenthood by divulging his most intimate fears, secrets, sorrows, and hopes as a writer, husband, and teacher. A methodically composed and paradoxical blend of inextricably vulnerable emotion and objective fascination, As I Stand Living renders visible the tension between mediation and transparency when attempting to represent, capture, and convey a lived experience on the cusp of its future. (#RECURRENT, Civil Coping Mechanisms, 2017)
