Win a Free Copy of Kirsten Kaschock’s Sleight

That’s right, we’re hosting another book giveaway, this time in collaboration with the fantastic Coffee House Press.

Kristen Park’s lovely review of Kirsten Kaschock’s Sleight debuts in the just-released Bombay Gin 38.1. Here’s a little teaser of the review in the issue you can purchase here:

Sleight is a body of work born in rupture—a text of scarring. Kirsten Kaschock, in a stroke of prestidigitation, invites the reader to participate in an inter-dimensional-textual-disciplinary exploration of absence and presence in art, family, tragedy and language. We enter the inter as intra: the punctum—“a site of atrocity.”

Kaschock amplifies the performativity—the gaze—present in sleight performance by having her characters challenge the very logic and creation she has constructed on the page. We become a part of the deconstruction—the process—the mess—in the commodification not just of body but body in trauma: tragedy.
