ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jane Lewty is the author of Bravura Cool (1913 Press: 2013) chosen by Fanny Howe as the winner of the 1913 First Book Prize in 2011.
Mistune is a project where the industrial decline of a city is registered polyvocally. It traces how a regional accent is lost, found, and lost again via certain methods, such as recalling the soundscape of 1990s dance music and the topology of a place that can never be regenerated, either for the individual or the community.
