Cunt Norton included in Christopher Higgs’ revised NBA Longlist

Dodie BellamyEvidently, HTMLGIANT contributor Christopher Higgs was dissatisfied with the National Book Award’s 2013 selections. “I’m sure they’re fine books,” he admitted, but as he was unfamiliar with a majority of the titles, he decided to create a “revised” list of his own, beginning with Les Figues’ own Cunt Norton by Dodie Bellamy. He praises:

Performing the necessary act of cunting up The Norton Anthology of Poetry (1975 edition), this book fulfills the impulse to revise the canon by shattering the masculine voices who dominate it.

All of Higgs’ selections are listed at HTMLGIANT.
