Written between 1975-1977 from the heart of New York City's art world, Constance DeJong's Modern Love is a forgotten classic of narrative prose innovation. Working largely alone, DeJong invented a narrative form that's at once intimate and highly constructed. Wilder than the French nouveau roman, Modern Love cannibalizes genre and realist fiction and travels through time to explore the dilemma of being a 27-year-old broke female loser who's told by the culture that she's "free to say and do anything I want".

Modern Love was considered a piece of visual art upon its first publication .

Modern Love was considered a piece of visual art upon its first publication in 1977 due to elements of the visual art movement it reflected, seen in performances of the text by DeJong around New York City. What DeJong means by painter is eclipsed by writing that expands and contracts, falling in on itself as it sings and breathes. She wanted it to exist in the present, rather than as a book written in the past, and to this day, it comes alive on the page – reaching into the mind and wrestling with the senses.

I distributed this serial publication of Modern Love, one volume at a time, through the USPS to a 500 person mailing list. A couple conceptual elements: I called the original serial The Complete Works of Constance Dejong Book One, Book Two, etc. thinking I would continue that way forever, each new text/project becoming a numbered book in a series. Book One has blurbs on the first page - appropriations of blurbs published for other writers.
