Printed in the colors of flesh and blood, VAS: An Opera in Flatlanda hybrid image-text noveldemonstrates how differing ways of imagining the body generate diverse stories of history, gender, politics, and, ultimately, the literature of who we are.

A constantly surprising, VAS combines a variety of voices, from journalism and libretto to poem and comic book. Often these voices meet in counterpoint, and the meaning of the narrative emerges from their juxtapositions, harmonies, or discords. Utilizing a wide and historical sweep of representations of the bodyfrom pedigree charts to genetic sequencesVAS is, finally, the story of finding one's identity within the double helix of language and lineage.
