Renee Gladman is the author of numerous books, including Not Right Now, Juice, The Activist, A Picture Feeling, Newcomer Can’t Swim, and most recently, To After That (TOAF). Her investigations of genre, which have been called “spectacular instances of art,” are often concerned with the relationship between urban space and the experience of reading.
Gladman sees publishing as part of her hybrid work. She founded and for a number of years edited the Leroy chapbook series, which published poetry and prose by emerging writers. Since 2004, she has been the editor and publisher of Leon Works, a series of books of experimental prose.
Gladman received a B.A. in philosophy from Vassar College and an M.A. in poetics from New College of California. She teaches in the Literary Arts Program at Brown University.
