Drifting on a Read: Jazz As a Model for Writing (Interruptions: Border Testimony(ies) and Critical Discourse/s)
For almost a century, writers such as Ralph Ellison, Michael Ondaatje, and Ishmael Reed have expressed an affinity for jazz, hearing the music as a model for writing. Michael Jarrett examines their work and the work of others who have brought jazz into language, pushing "interpretation" into the realm of "invention."
