TheCoevas official blog Strumentisti di Parole/Musicians of words
This COEVAL loop is born from authors’ intimate necessity to communicate, to reflect about novel’s atmospheres, to lead to new intersections and to sound new soundings.
Welcome to observe this blog river’s stream in constant motion. We consider words’ instrumentalists and we choose a daily presence in the global village. COEVA is born as a symphony’s score, modulating and arranging idioms.
The Coevas are a group of Italian writers and musicians -- they call themselves a "band literature," and that's how they write, as a group under a single name -- who spin crazed sexual dreamy prose like William Burroughs cutting up Jean Rhys channeling Orpheus.
