We are pleased to announce Lark's 2016 trio: erica lewis's all of the real tears, Raquel Salas-Rivera's oropel/tinsel, and Ginger Ko's Comorbid.
"Expansive and urgent...angled into the crisis of racialized and gendered silencing, especially in literary spaces, Ko’s poems are brilliant (as in shining) crystal beginnings. In other words, they prepare a way and music for thinking through what’s brutal. Most importantly, her poems describe that brutality in our shared moment, animating its failed logic and insisting on an alternative."
Ginger Ko is the author of Motherlover from Bloof Books, and the chapbook Inherit, also from Bloof, as well as Comorbid, new from Lark.
Lark Books & Writing Studio publishes poetry and other visionary writing. We are a healing press.
"We should be making a determined effort to move forward in the creation of a continental culture that understands itself as a totality and a novelty whose only concern is creating forms of existence that provide everyone involved with a sense of integrity and identity." -- Vine Deloria Jr.
These books join Lark's 2015 series, Sophie Mayer's kaolin, or How Does a Girl Like You Get to be A Girl Like You? and Elizabeth Treadwell's Posy: a charm almanack & atlas.
