My chapbook of microfictions 20 Objects For The New World, just released by Vancouver’s Nomados Literary Publishers, is now available at Project Space, a gallery and book shop in Chinatown located at 222 East Georgia. Copies can also be ordered through Nomados here.
A text of “leakage,” a “softwall luminesence” that produces and diminishes its own light. Deep in the “bloodclick,” Alex Leslie’s gorgeous chapbook bonds design materials, transit routes and sky/ocean notes to create both an “impression of…thoughts” and a progressive, “wavering” grid of feeling. Narrative hurts then stops. Gate theory. Then expresses: “when you let it go.” Loved this. Loved what was brought to bear upon: a Westward edge.
