A Small Rising Up in the Lungs

Sparked by a fascination with space and proximity, the four interwoven series in A Small Rising Up in the Lungs traverse literary topographies and human relationships to urge the speaker into physical and emotional proximity to the Other, at distances sometimes close and at other times unreachable.

The first full-length collection from Kit Frick, A Small Rising Up in the Lungs is an agile excavation, at once playful and pensive, inquest and act of empathy. From imagined landscapes and escape routes to the coal mines of western Pennsylvania, these poems construct a possible heritage through an exploration of the terrain we navigate—on foot and in our blood.
