The Believer reviews Pamela Lu’s novel, Ambient Parking Lot: Pamela Lu targets art movements of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, gleefully eviscerating avant-garde pieties, cherished literary truths, and pop-cultural bromides alike. And yet, despite these satirical hijinks, Ambient Parking Lot ultimately raises questions that might apply more broadly to those of us who enjoy taking […]

Bomb Magazine features an interview with Trisha Low by Sarah Gerard. I was looking at Kara Jesella’s blog—I’m an admirer of hers, we were in class together in performance studies, and I had this weird hero worship thing going on—but on her blog, she was talking about this piece by Shulamith Firestone called “Airless Spaces,” […]

Ben Fama’s interview with Trisha Low is here at The Believer Logger. E.g., Sometimes I almost feel like Purge is only a prosthetic, a paratext of [Jack Spicer's] Admonitions, a more synthetic, plastic manifestation of what Spicer accomplished so nimbly.

Jean-Marie Gleize’s talk on Arthur Rimbaud’s “Democracy” translated into English by Joshua Clover and live at Jacket2: Experimental politics, at significant distance from political institutions, are or should be in principle like experimental art and poetry, by definition. It is for us to build our own cabins and the paths which connect them (these may […]

Drew Kalbach’s review of PQRS is new at The Fanzine: What does it mean when our work is easily archived, searched, collated, cut apart, pasted back together, quantified, shared, compressed, leaked, and otherwise shifted from one place to another? Its materiality is questioned, since material things aren’t supposed to be that mutable, although maybe that’s […]

Warscapes, the international journal of political and cultural criticism, is running a preview of Jean-Marie Gleize’s Tarnac, which is introduced with new remarks by the author. Read more here. I claim for this book a place in a tradition of writing that of a certain objectivisme. There is, in these pages and the horizon of […]

Patrick Durgin’s poetics statement, belated prefatory matter, pacifist treatise, etc. is featured in the new issue of The Volta: “Prelude to PQRS”–which happens to quote extensively from the book. Also in this issue of The Volta is a review of Jesse Seldess’ Left Having. Seems like a fitting occasion to offer both at a discount […]
