Modern Love by Constance DeJong( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Constance DeJong's long-neglected 1977 novel, Modern Love, is one thing made up of many: It is science fiction. It is a detective story. It is a historical episode in the time of the Armada and the dislocation of Sephardic Jews from Spain to an eventual location in New York's Lower East Side. It is a first-person narrator's story; Charlotte's story; and Roderigo's; and Fifi Corday's. It is a 150-year-old story about Oregon and the story of a house in Oregon. Modern Love's continuity is made of flow and motion; like an experience, it accumulates as you read, at that moment, through successive moments, right to the end."--

The Lucy Amarillo stories : [poems] by Constance DeJong( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Constance DeJong's writing is closely connected to performance. Since 1977 she has made oral adaptations of her experimental texts and performed them to audiences throughout the U.S. and Europe. At this event at the Kitchen, DeJong reads The Lucy Amarillo Stories, while a musician performs a composition by Philip Glass on the harmonica. The two performers interact attentively, the musician emphasizing passages in DeJong's text with the augmented intensity of Glass's score. The reading develops as an atmospheric telling of the story of young Lucy Amarillo, who leads a lonely and eventless life in New York City, truly living only when she dreams."--EAI website
