A gradual redefinition of the traditional concept of "family" has been occurring in America. Its new forms have been well chronicled in film, television, and literature. Marsha Recknagel, who teaches creative writing at Rice University, will explore permutations, transformations, and mutations of the nuclear family as represented in these recent works of fiction and nonfiction: Tony Earley's Jim the Boy, Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections, Dave Eggers' A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and Valerie Streiken's forthcoming Leopard's Hat.
