Other literary forms
Michael Cunningham edited and wrote the introduction for Laws for Creations (2006), a collection of poems by Walt Whitman. Cunningham has also published short stories that have appeared in several well-known literary magazines. His story “The Destruction Artist” appeared in A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer (2007), a collection edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle. With Susan Minot, Cunningham cowrote a screenplay adapted from Minot’s novel Evening (1998), which subsequently became a 2007 film release. Cunningham also has written introductions or afterwords for new editions of works by such authors as Thomas Mann, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf.
