Broken hearts, scattered dreams, postpunk politics, and postmodern cut-up collages spiral and flow in award-winning poet Daphne Gottlieb's latest collection of startling new works that explore survival after personal or communal disasters and the renewal that follows. Whether she's writing about unanticipated outcomes ("After the Midway Ride Collapsed"), her mother's passing ("Somewhere, Over"), or absurd situations ("Preoccupation"), Gottlieb's deeply personal insights into the complex areas where life and contemporary culture collide offer readers a unique, thought-provoking perspective. "I Have Always Confused Desire with Apocalypse" We met over a small earthquake. Now, my knees shake whenever you come around and I've noticed your hand has a slight tremor. Daphne Gottlieb is the award-winning author of seven books including the critically acclaimed poetry collection Final Girl (Soft Skull Press) and the graphic novel Jokes and the Unconscious (Cleis Press), illustrated by Diane DiMassa. Gottlieb has performed and taught creative writing workshops throughout the United States. She received her MFA from Mills College, and currently resides in San Francisco.
