The smallest and most economical member of the Kennedy/Gioia family, Backpack Literature is a brief paperback version of the discipline’s most popular introduction to literature anthology. Like its bigger, bestselling predecessors, Backpack Literature features the authors’ collective poetic voice which brings personal warmth and a human perspective to the discussion of literature, adding to students’ interest in the readings. New selections have been added including four new one-act plays to help “ease” students into the study of this genre. The new plays include two comedies– David Ives’s, Sure Thing and Jane Martin’s Beauty—as well as Terrence McNally’s poignant Andre’s Mother and Edward Bok Lee’s experimental drama El Santo Americano.
