Mira Gonzalez has a book coming out

Mira Gonzalez‘s first book, i will never be beautiful enough to make us beautiful together, is now available for pre-order from Sorry House, a new press founded by Spencer Madsen. It will be published in January. The trailer above is by Meggie Green and Michael Inscoe.

It’s a book of poems. I’ve read the manuscript and enjoyed it. The poems are declarative, metaphorical, full of imagination and dreams as well as physical events. They create a feeling of rudderlessness, an uncanny mixture of confusion, sadness, and detached introspection.

Click here to read a poem by her on her tumblr and see one of her collages, which I also like. Also there’s these poems and this one.

As an added bonus, Mira is a real fun, nice person to interact with, and her Twitter is very enjoyable and funny and zany.

Sorry House has rounded up an impressive group of blurbs from Blake Butler, Melissa Broder, Brad Listi, Tao Lin, and Victor “Kool A.D.” Vazquez.

I feel nice that Mira will have a book out in January and I’m glad Spencer is making a press according to his particular tastes and collaborating with lots of good people.

  25. A D Jameson

      I did just get a smart phone, though, over the Thanksgiving holiday. And have almost figured out how to use it. Watch out world! … … Although what I mainly want to know is how I can read G.I. Joe comics on it …

  26. A D Jameson

      Nor eaglets.

  27. Jackson Nieuwland

      or nest eggs

  28. A D Jameson

      Mm, I don’t know about that. Nest eggs seem important? People keep telling me that, so I keep meaning to investigate them….

  29. Mira Gonzalez

      everything is fantastic

  30. tao lin


  31. dl.flsxzkmrkyrzk

      yes, i am her no. 1 fangirl

  32. Jackson Nieuwland

      I would advise you not to investigate eggs while their mother is nesting. She will likely feel threatened and behave violently towards you

      hi! whats up jax

  60. Jackson Nieuwland

      I have a draft of an email to you in gmail. It’s not finished yet, in fact it’s barely started. Almost just wrote ‘barefully’ instead of ‘barely’. I’ll probably send it tonight. How are you bro? I like your posts on this website. I like referring to this website as this website instead of its actual name



  62. Austin Islam

      if there are like, corners, of the internet, this has got to be one of the sweetest corners, that i’ve found, like, today and for the past few days

      i want to read this

      also nice ivdeo and great blurbs.. ‘hype machine’

  63. Jackson Nieuwland

      It is important to take risks

  64. Jackson Nieuwland

      hi austin. a good thing to do would be to count how many corners that internet has and use that number to figure out what geometric shape it is

  65. Mira Gonzalez

      the internet is 25 equilateral triangles

  66. Jackson Nieuwland

      that’s all good and well but how do they intersect?

  67. Willis Plummer

      The universe (which others call the Internet) is composed of an indefinite and perhaps infinite number of hexagonal galleries, with vast air shafts between, surrounded by very low railings

  68. Jackson Nieuwland

      Really like the idea of the internet and the universe being the same thing. Thinking ‘how haven’t I thought of that before’
