People in a town in Connecticut that have just passed a law requiring all men to carry all women across all thresholds at all times

This, Clarence Major's fourth novel, is about people in a town in Connecticut that has just passed a law requiring all men to carry all women across all thresholds at all times. Even before publication the book gained critical attention.

Clarence Major is a poet, novelist, short fiction writer, visual artist, essayist, lexicographer, editor, and anthologist.

 

“My knowledge of Major’s writings—the earlier novels, short fiction and poetry—goes back several years and I have great respect for his accomplishments in the past and for this new work of fiction, which I have been able to examine in typescript. Emergency Exit sustains and carries forward the achievements of the other works and will be a very valuable addition to contemporary American literature . . . I value Emergency Exit for its explorations into both contemporary American life and culture and the rich possibilities of the art of fiction . . . the new novel advances Major’s long interest in experimentalism and the articulation of a complex vision for prose fiction . . . with an accompanying artistry and craftsmanship which will only add to his stature as one of the vital and important writers in America today.”
—Douglas Bolling
