About  NOS (disorder, not otherwise specified):

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Disability Studies. Parenting. Autism. Collaboration. Docu-poetics. "We think we know how our lives should be; we know how words fit together in a sentence. We use tests and benchmarks, charts and graphs, rules and spell-checks, to affirm these truths. Maya--the little girl at the center of this book--confounds such ways of knowing. Innominate, she inspires this book's form and sound, similarly unclassifiable. In NOS, Kaupang and Cooperman fight for a new grammar beyond the limits of standardized lines, to 'let loose the radiant / circle of her sentence.' It's a grammar we all need."--Jena Osman
