Molly Peacock and Anita Lahey, eds.

Tightrope Books

The new volume opens with introductory essays from series editors Molly Peacock and Anita Lahey, and closes with contributor commentaries and biographies, highlights from the introductions by the first nine guest editors, and an index cross-referenced by subject and form.
