Celebrate three new books with us at the UDP studio:
MA by Ida Börjel, translated by Jennifer Hayashida
MA, Ida Börjel’s award-winning abecedarian, is a maelstrom of voices cast in the underwater shadows and nuclear light of the Anthropocene. Appearing for the first time in English in Jennifer Hayashida’s luminous translation, MA is less a curative than a testimonial, speaking simultaneously for the one and the many, the solitary mother and the insurgent multitude.
Read Me: Selected Works by Holly Melgard
Spanning a multiplicity of genres, media, and tonal registers, this book surveys Holly Melgard’s formally experimental poetic works produced between 2008 and 2023, including sound poems, essays on poetics, and books that exploit print on demand to, for example, counterfeit money. From critical talks to fictional monologues, the poet translates into language the unremarkable torments of neoliberalization in the digital age.
Joan of Arkansas by Milo (Emma) Wippermann
