Miranda Metelski

With the launch of our website we are pleased to announce:

PRE-ORDERS are now available for Miranda Metelski’s “Resisting the Book of a Woman Possessed”

‘RESISTING THE BOOK is exactly that: a book that will never exist. Flickering on the edges of antimemoir, hagiography, and divinatory poetics, this hybrid-text grotesquerie aborts itself in order to have something to feed on. Structured as a series of prose poems, process notes, and mock critical theory, much of its mystery is documented through visual forms such as erasure, collage, selfie, and handwritten page. Like watching Joan of Arc in reverse, RESISTING THE BOOK is born on the cross, a witch-script that turns itself inside out, whispering to you through the flames.’ —David Kuhnlein
