Something has fallen away. We have lost a part of ourselves, our history, what we once were. That something, when we encounter it again, look it straight in the eyes, disgusts us, makes us retch. This is the horror of the abject. Following the success of Comma’s award-winning New Uncanny anthology, The New Abject invites leading authors to respond to two parallel theories of the abject-Julia Kristeva’s theory of the psychoanalytic, intimate abject, and Georges Bataille’s societal equivalent-with visceral stories of modern unease.
