This issue, AnOther Document discovers collections, collages and hoardings from all over the world. From priceless art to eccentric groups of people, forgotten objects in attics and fictional museums, we have contributions from some of the world’s greatest writers: Patti Smith, Jonathan Lethem, Peggy Guggenheim, Joyce Carol Oates, E L Doctorow, Tom McCarthy, William S Burroughs, Truman Capote and Orhan Pamuk. Finally, we curate a mini museum of found objects from a handful of contributors’ closets. What follows is a collection of truth and fiction celebrating the curious, the beautiful and the bizarre.
