About this item

It would be reductive to say what Leave to Remain is “about.” It is rather a book possessed by doubleness, duplicity, double entendres, two-facedness, ambiguity, and ambivalence—as is only appropriate for a work composed by two writers. In their earlier “hybrid essay,” A Prank of Georges (2010), Thalia Field and Abigail Lang returned us to “the primal force of language: naming” (Susan Howe). In Leave to Remain, they bring together text and image, poetry and prose, Santa Claus and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., to remind us of naming’s elusiveness and meaning’s vulnerability. And, once again, their ludic sense of language lights up every page.
