A new review of Echo, Echo, Light on the Green Mountains Review website calls the chapbook’s poems “evidence of mystery and chaos ordered by language through prose poetry…Whether the landscapes we feel inside us or observe outside us, the moon-world Kit Frick has brought to light is challenging and compelling. Echo, Echo, Light revises the moon’s place in poetry, revitalizes the long admired image and entity.”
Many thanks to Gina Keicher for writing and to the GMR editors for running this generous and lovely review of the chapbook!
One summer: two chapbooks! Kill Your Darlings, Clementine is out now from Rye House Press, and the books are just beautiful! A world of thanks to editor and visionary Jeremiah Gould at Rye House Press for turning my manuscript into a beautiful, hand-stitched chapbook featuring both a textured, letterpress cover and an offset printed dust jacket with a portrait of the artist (that’s me!).
Books are available for sale from the Rye House Press website, or you can contact me directly to purchase.
Rye House has this to say about Kill Your Darlings, Clementine:
“Set in a location of unknown but strongly felt isolation, Kill Your Darlings, Clementine observes the actions, attitudes, of a group of men again and again, echoing its opening refrain throughout: The men here, the men here…
Kill Your Darlings, Clementine speaks not only to the constructs of masculinity, fatherhood, and small town life, it works with the themes of observation, isolation, potency, and forgiveness. The language is powerful and chiseled. Kill Your Darlings, Clementine is both anthropology and archeology. Uncover it for yourself.”
Please help me welcome my two chaps ECHO, ECHO, LIGHT and KILL YOUR DARLINGS, CLEMENTINE into the world! (And, hey, it’s also almost my birthday, so three birds, one stone!) Readings by EMILY BRANDT, GINA KEICHER, LILY LADEWIG, and KIT FRICK. No cover, cash bar, books for sale, joy to be had.
