The Chained Hay(na)ku Project

Tuesday, August 24, 2010
Allen Bramhall's thoughts:
"The thunderst[r]uck core of this book would be the poem “Four Skin Confessions”, and the divagations on same, by the curators of this project. The divagations are in fact conversations on the process. One feels genuine weight in the matter. The poem is thoughtfully executed."
Ernesto Priego:
"...the poem took a life of its own, also so to speak, and the most beautiful and uncanny thing, when I was reading it all out loud even before we had finished it, was realizing that I no longer remembered which parts I had written and what parts had been written by whom."
SPECIAL RELEASE OFFER: the book will be offered at US$10 per book (you can order as many as you wish) through September 30, 2010. Free domestic shipping is also available within the U.S.
