Publisher’s description: We believe that literature should strive to re-conceptualize the world and render with nuance its complexities. Literary work must evolve the poignancy with which the reader experiences life. Unfortunately, much contemporary literature, galvanized by the perverted specter of “make it new,” has prioritized novelty over potency. At best, such literature conveys an attitude in place of the intellectual wonder that underlies meaningful writing. We have established Literary Laundry to promote the literature that we, as readers, crave: masterful writing that can hold discourse with great literary and intellectual traditions while still engaging the complexities of our world today.
