October’s selection

Voodoo Hypothesis is an interior in motion: a gorgeous, searching intelligence. It is a womb/tomb of luminous inquiry. A semi-permeable ship where your mind is in concert with Lubrin’s forward propagating lineation, a participatory dreamscape that leads you back to your own culpability. This is a work that reads you, too.” – Liz Howard, author of Infinite Citizen of the Shaking Tent and winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize

CANISIA LUBRIN VOODOO HYPOTHESIS (Wolsak & Wynn) is KFB’s 2017-18 Subscription Series October Selection.
