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.

      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

      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

  15. Mira Gonzalez

      the internet is 25 equilateral triangles

  16. Jackson Nieuwland

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

      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

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