    What does a new voice sound like?

    Patrick Ryan, Bich Minh Nguyen, Maggie Nelson, Edmund White

    Edmund White, Maggie Nelson, Bich Minh Nguyen, and Patrick Ryan discuss “newness” in authorial voice, using Harold Bloom’s idea of “the anxiety of influence” as a jumping-off point. Nguyen’s theory of “the Asian once-over,” Ryan’s “Impostor Syndrome,” and Nelson’s notion of the “intoxicating” influence of another writer joust toward an agreement that writers must both escape from, and surround themselves with, other voices in order to attain their own.
