Creative Writing

Sister by Steven Karl

Sister KarlSister by Steven Karl, graduate, MFA in Creative Writing program at The New School.

Noemi Press, 2016

From the publisher: A ritual of grief & a hallucinatory journey through caring, Sister explores the emotions, contexts, & margins of loss. Karl moves from tight-lipped minimalism to expansive talkiness to a fabulism of beasts & insects, building poems out of the imagined landscapes of death, linguistic junk & prayer. He searches for that which poetry always searches, to say the unsayable. Sister is a beautiful book & a sad book & a cathartic book & you need to read it. -Mathias Svalina
