about

Renee Gladman has always struck me as being a dreamer-she writes that way and the dreaming seems to construct the architecture of the world unfolding before our reading eyes."-Eileen MylesA book of ink drawings that regards language as an exposed nervous system, uncovering the moment whereby architecture emerges out of prose, the sentence becomes a drawing, and the act of writing narrative can be examined from bodily movements. Gladman beautifully uses the drawings as an extension of her writing process, as a way to free language from constraint. Afterword by Fred Moten.Renee Gladman is a writer and artist preoccupied with lines, crossings, thresholds, geographies, and syntaxes as they play out in the interstices of poetry and prose. She is the author of ten published works, including a cycle of novels about the city-state Ravicka and its inhabitants, the Ravickians, andCalamities, a collection of linked essays on writing and experience. She lives in New England with poet-ceremonialist, Danielle Vogel.
