Miranda Mellis on time travel movies, Lynn Marie Kirby and Etel Adnan, and Renee Gladman at The Believer Logger! Mellis's DEMYSTIFICATIONS is forthcoming on June 1!

Recently a spate of shows and films about being caught in a time loop have appeared (by my count, five), all of them following, to some degree, a formula similar to that laid down by Groundhog Day.* The formula goes like this: you are stuck in a time loop by yourself. The same day keeps […]

A preview of the cover of Miranda Mellis's DEMYSTIFICATIONS, forthcoming on June 1!

Demystifications is a circle of keys, a florilegium, a circle of voices engaged in a public conversation whose subject is the transformation of knowledge into a collective organ. Mellis uses aphorism to bring us back to basics--what is the best way to proceed, starting from here? How should we inhabit the present? By excavation, by error, by exaggeration, by gesture, by revolt, by contradiction, by voice, by tone. Fanny Howe and Edward Said, Etel Adnan, Karl Marx and Muriel Rukeyser--Miranda Mellis hosts the living and the dead in a grand conference on the value and practice of wisdom.--Robert Glück

With humor and grace, bite and tenderness, these ninety-nine poems structure an archive of a Miranda Mellis mind map. I loved being there with her! “Demystifications is a key ring,” each page a passkey. From Orange Is the New Black to Etel Adnan, from Revital and Tuur’s albino goldfish via Marx to Blessing Ngobeni with several visits to Walter Benjamin; the good enough mother; and the public school down the block, Mellis expands the visible--not to hide the cracks, but “to see the fissure in the fix.” She also gives us the possibility of “a forgiveness cloak”--a one-size-fits-all garment--to help us see through other minds besides our own in these darkest of times.--Lynn Marie Kirby

An excerpt from Christine Hume’s SATURATION PROJECT now up at Full Stop! Many thanks to Full Stop and to Jesse Miller!

Building an audible nest for intensifying, as a bird might shed drab feathers for bright ones in a time of courtship, an ordinary song for a mating call, my sonic ornament was a customized flush of puberty, a condensed libidinal vehemence.

We’re thrilled to announce the publication of Samuel Amadon’s LISTENER! Brian Teare writes, “LISTENER bristles with disquiet. . . . The resulting music brings readers paradoxically back to themselves.” Anneysa Gaille from The Brooklyn Review writes, “In LISTENER, narrow paths and dictated borders become spaces of possibilities, virgules gesturing to a potentiality we can feel but not name—at least for now.”

SOLID OBJECTS is a publisher of fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction. It was founded in 2010 and is based in New York City.

We’re so excited to announce the forthcoming publication of Samuel Amadon’s LISTENER, due out on June 15!

Renee Gladman’s Morelia

A fantastic review of Renee Gladman's MORELIA by Sarah Gerard in Music & Literature! "MORELIA is a space between: a work of fiction, philosophy, poetry, travel, biography, and sculpture. And also, none of these. A dream."

Reviewed by Sarah Gerard Just forty-three pages in total, Morelia feels expansive. The telescoping structure of the narrative is one reason. In its early pages, the story regularly slips into and opens the parallel realm of the narrator’s dream, which may be real. Renee Gladman expertly pivots o

Staff Picks: Passion, Portals, and Premature Presents

Many thanks to The Paris Review and Lauren Kane for featuring Renee Gladman's MORELIA in "Staff Picks"! "The specific tension therein is between the waking and dreaming states, between the domestic spaces of the home, and the world that exists outside of them."

This week, the staff of ‘The Paris Review’ reads pre-Ravicka Renee Gladman, purchases a springtime Christmas present, and tears down the information superhighway with Patricia Lockwood.
