The book takes its form from lines of the Sharon Olds poem "Looking at Them Asleep." In WHAT DO YOU KNOW?, "love" is a subject, an asker of questions, who addresses a range of characters, some of them places and some of them people and ideas. And the characters speak back, weaving together a polyvocal and many-placed text that attempts to think about a range of places, "knowledges," and perspectives. We wanted to create a manuscript that would model play, imagining, and surprise within a formal constraint.
