Author: Barbara Henning

Publisher: United Artists Books (2007)

A new book of poems by the author of You, Me & The Insects and Love Makes Thinking Dark.

"In this witty, post-Oulipian take on you-are-what-you-read, Henning dispossesses, recycles, and levels out the singular lines she lifts from the likes of Bataille, Joyce, or Gertrude Stein, all the way to authors of travel aned cookbooks that sit on her shelves. The resulting seventy-one 'sonnets' sound their orphaned music: 'strangers now, but once we were lovers' with the hidden glee of the artist behind her console, sampling, spinning, shredding, and remixing. My Autobiography is a concept, a mirror, a community: see you there!"
