An Experimental Memoir, a Grief-Stricken Poetry Collection, and a Daring Booklength Essay

The Yellow House by Chiwan Choi is a new of poetry from Civil Coping Mechanisms that’s been selling very well (in part thanks to a serial in The New York Times).

As I Stand Living by Christopher Higgs is also from CCM and is a lyric, fragmentary memoir derived from Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying.

At the Lightning Field by Laura Raicovich is a forthcoming booklength lyric essay from Coffee House Press based in Walter De Maria’s “Lightning Field,” an art piece of 400 stainless steel poles positioned 220 feet apart in the desert of central New Mexico.

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .
