It’s AWC member Marjorie Kanter’s latest publication Small Talk, a collection of short literary, poem-like pieces (hybridities) based on true-to-life experiences and some questions and reflections. Small Talk plays like jazz with improvisations and melody with different tempos.
Kanter fills the texts with irony, humor, and sensitivity. To read her pieces is to go through a kaleidoscope of experiences that changes with each reading. It’s a compilation of her work imagined, experienced, written, and rewritten over the past ten years.
Marjorie Kanter is a writer, public art installer, inter-active performance and creativity-writing workshop facilitator, and investigator. Characteristic of her writing are little interactions and short reflective pieces. She plays with border crossings, integrating many areas of interest into her creative work including the pragmatics of communication, language development, bilingualism, linguistics, ethnography, psychology, life writing, sociology, and interculturality. In her writing, she strives to mesh (all) her different selves, experiences, and interests.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Kanter has lived in Spain for the past 30 years.
Kanter’s works include
Small Talk, I Displace the Air as I Walk, The Bagged Stories: An Installation Project, The Saddle Stitch Notebooks, Impoliteness: One Hundred Impolite Days, The Skirt, House Menu, The Swimming Pool, The Outsider . . .
