Details

“The Unbearables started as a tongue-in-cheek way to give unaffiliated American writers a sense of community. And, after five anthologies, we’re still here. It’s been fascinating, funny, and educational being a part of this non-group group since our very first readings on Canal Street back in the day. We’ve all had quite a ride.”— Samuel R. Delany, author of Dhalgren and In Search of Silence: The Journals of Samuel R. Delany, Vol I, 1957–1969.

“This new patriotic anthology makes America unbearable again! Not that it isn’t already — but more so. Just when we need it most!” — Elaine Equi, author of Sentences and Rain and Click and Clone

“The Unbearables, a loose aggregate of writers and artists, has its epicenter in NYC. This lively ‘gang’ has taken it upon itself from the very beginning to quicken the artistic and literary scene, injecting fresh air into the often stale atmosphere of established and academic writing. Intense and very much to the point, they always risk everything!” — Elias Schneitter, publisher, The Unbearables: Wir agierten völlig durchgeknallt (Edition Baes, Austria, 2017

“The Unbearables are the beer mystical long lost siblings you never knew you wanted. They take the ‘pro’ out of prose. They put the ‘lower’ in the Lower East Side.” — Chavisa Woods, author of The Albino Album and Things to Do When You’re Goth in the Country

“The Unbearables’ From Somewhere to Nowhere offers recent history the way it really happened. Not a coterie or a movement, the Unbearables are a lifestyle, a steady dose, a vital drip in the vein that jolts you awake.” — Peter Bushyeager, author of In the Green Oval

“From the bowels of Bohemia, come the Unbearables, spitting funk and vinegar. This loose-knit knot of Underground scribes maintains a longstanding social arena that must be anathema to academe — multivalent, irreverent, and authentic to-the-bone.” — Jeffrey Cyphers Wright, author of Triple Crown: Three Crowns of Sonnets
