My New Little Book

From Cinematheque Press, here's a new collection of poems. It's available at the end of this month! Here's what they say:

"Ada Limón's poems are stories, intricate worlds of becoming. She is writer, director, & cinematographer. Every-Thing has its place, every stretch of highway glows under the hot hot sun of the past & the present. What Sucks Us In Will Surely Swallow Us Whole could be a verse novella. Or it could be a collection of some of the shortest stories ever written. Or maybe it's just a book, a book that will smash through the window of your chest & thieve your heart."

Thanks Nate Slawson for making this all happen. I can't wait to hold it in my hand, in my chest.

I have no idea who you are, and the chance that you have heard of me is laughable, but with a title like this, I am certain to buy a copy. I look forward to reading your poetry.

If you track me back to my blog, be sure to look for the offer I have up to trade my most recent chapbook for something fun and cool. If you are interested, know I am already going to buy your book, so it would need to be something else.

Way to go. Will they magically fall from the sky or is there a special place to order?

Hi Ada. It's Sal and Rachel.

We love your blog, please write more soon.

And we ordered the new book. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Tell us this, do we space it out, or can we read it all in one night?

Way to go.
