About Their Work:

What would it be like to watch the record of our lives spliced and diced like a photomontage?  To write about neighborhood walks as a drolly Sisyphean adventure in outré banal surrealism?  Susan Schulz is here to answer those questions.  Full of news-flecked missives in which atrocity and history dance with mundanity, dog-walks replete with shit, mansplaining, muscular calves, toddlers, Ferdinand Marcos and holy mountains, Schulz’s pieces take us to places we have and haven’t been, evading and surprising us just when we think we’ve heard it all.
