Staff Reviews

This dense and beautiful book touches a wide range of topics including gender, race, violence, and art, taking the first few moments of a riot and meditating and expanding on them until the moment touches so much more. The act of creation, of poetry, of storytelling is the centerpiece of Kapil’s brilliant book, so I highly recommend this for writers and other artists.




An evocative exploration of body and politics by one of our most exciting innovative writers.
