Two Nomads Writing: A Textor's Review
Badley, Graham
Qualitative Inquiry, v17 n6 p483-492 Jul 2011
"Between the Two" by Ken Gale and Jonathan Wyatt has been praised as methodologically significant and pedagogically important. Indeed reviewers may well struggle to challenge a book variously described as beautiful, brilliant, evocative, erudite, original, profound, and sensitive. A critical or nonaffirmative review may well be received as sour and curmudgeonly. Nevertheless, despite this risk, an attempt is made to critique the book in the form of "a textor's review". A "textor" is described as a weaver of threads and, by extension, a fabricator or maker of texts, so this review is a text created or fabricated to be about another text. The review is presented as a series of textual scores, which are intended to help the textor examine issues raised in the book including those of the writers seeing themselves as actual or virtual nomads, as collaborative writers, and as two individuals striving, apparently, to become one.
