Desire: A Haunting


Product Description
Product Details


"Even alone, writes Molly Gaudry, 'we are not unloved.' And indeed, a reader cannot help but be trapped in tentacles of love when reading her twisting, tender Desire: A Haunting. No one but Gaudry paints language with so much care, with so much lonely, heart-dreamed beauty. No one else paints scars so naked and so necessary. This book is a breathing thing, a piece of life-in-love-in-art." --Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World and Other Stories"Each page is an epiphany of spectral nesting dolls: open love to expose lamentation; crack the soft skeleton of memory to release matriarchal debt--and hidden inside it all, Gaudry's spare lyric floats through us, ethereal and elegant." --Lily Hoang, author of A Bestiary"This book is more poem than most poems-- ghosts--literary and created--populating a prose broken into savage and sweet lines--hands drawn through viscera and the appearance thereof--to concoct a drama as yet untold yet retold a thousand times over: love love love love love, I love you I love you. Molly Gaudry is our Neruda, our Marquez, our chronicler of times spent and as yet foretold." --Jamie Iredell, author of Last Mass"With the sharpest of knives, Molly Gaudry carves richness and poverty, sadness and sweetness, violence and love into the reader's consciousness. A cut neck, a suicide, a drowning, you want to look away, but you don't, because you would miss your chance to live. Desire: A Haunting is a perfect, tender book." --Amina Cain, author of Creature"This is a delightful, unsettling & addictive book in which the dead speak to & follow the living, in which memory knots into presence, in which love is always a ghost." --Mathias Svalina, author of Destruction Myth
