Sarah Lawrence Hosts Discussion Of Novel Written By Students

YONKERS, N.Y. -- A discussion about how 13 Sarah Lawrence College students in a fiction-writing class, taught by faculty member Melvin Bukiet, collaboratively conceived, wrote and published the novel "Naked Came the Post-Postmodernist," will take place on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. in Great Room of the Esther Raushenbush Library.

In the resulting “whodunit,” inspired by the inglorious literary tradition of "Naked Came the Stranger" and "Naked Came the Manatee," the students crafted a collaborative novel about a murder mystery on a fictional campus where crime, hedonistic characters and praying mantises come together for a wild, irreverent parody of a privileged campus culture. "Naked Came the Post-Postmodernist" was published last year by Arcade Publishing. It is the first novel of its kind to be composed entirely by students, but it was not without its challenges – each student wrote two chapters and revised them based on class critiques.

Throughout the process, students had to balance the creative freedom of developing the plot with the accountability of carrying through storylines of the previous chapters – and ultimately had to produce a compelling, cohesive novel worthy of publication at the end of the course.
