This paper is a response to Graham Badley’s welcome article in this volume, Two Nomads Writing, in which he takes issue with Gale and Wyatt’s 2009 book, Between the Two: A Nomadic Inquiry into Collaborative Writing and Subjectivity. In this paper, the authors address the two key points he raises, the first of which concerns the value or otherwise of the book’s contribution and the second the authors’ use of postmodern `jargon’. Wyatt and Gale argue that Badley does not engage with and/or misunderstands, the Deleuzian notion of the subject that they explore in their book and that the `difficult’ language connects with the complex notions that Deleuze invites us to consider. The authors end with responding to Badley’s observation that conflict and challenge are missing within their writing.
