An anthology of original essays from our most intriguing young writers, Bookmark Now boldly addresses the significance of the production of literature in the twenty-first century. Or simply, ôHow do we talk about writing and reading in an age where they both seem almost quaint?öThe book features authors in their twenties and thirtiesùthose raised when TV, video games, and then the Internet supplanted books as dominant cultural mediumsùand their intent is to examine: (1) how this generation came to writing as a calling, (2) what they see as literatureÆs relevance when media consumption and competition have reached unprecedented levels, and (3) how writing and reading fit in with the rest of our rapid, multitasking world. The result will offer a voyeuristic peek into the private, creative lives of todayÆs writers and shed light on what their work means at a time when the book business is changing, yetùalmost paradoxicallyùa time when storytelling as a means of both self-realization and community building (be it via e-mail, weblogs, or ôThis American Lifeö) seems more relevant than ever before.Edited by Kevin Smokler, a Bay Area entrepreneur who has devoted himself to fostering literary culture and cultivating fresh talent, Bookmark Now is a collection that both captures the state of the art and provides inspiration to aspiring writers at all levels.
