Please join us for a celebration and reading of Seattle poet E. Briskin‘s first book.
With playful digressions into anecdote, the philosophy of consciousness, literature, and animal behavioral science, Orange approaches grief at once tangentially and directly. Its narrator—disconnected, mournful, comic, angry, irreverent, overwrought, and seemingly always in a coffee shop—wants to understand the lost dog and to memorialize it, or maybe, in grieving, to regain what is lost.
Orange is a book that resists genre, gendering, and chronology. Written in a furrowed numbering scheme that can be read vertically or horizontally, its form reflects the way our psyche is fragmented and unified by loss.
E. Briskin is a queer Jew from Virginia. E. has lived in Seattle for many years.
