2015 INDIES Winner
Gold, Writing (Adult Nonfiction)

When we talk about hybrid literary genres, what do we mean? Unprecedented in both its scope and approach, Family Resemblance explores the answer to that question in depth, providing craft essays and examples of hybrid forms by 43 distinguished authors. In this study of eight hybrid genres—including lyric essay, epistolary, poetic memoir, prose poetry, performative, short-form nonfiction, flash fiction, and pictures made of words—the family tree of hybridity takes delightful shape.
