Book Reading: The Thingbody
A good book, a good cup of coffee, and maybe a nosh? You can get all of it this Saturday, April 4th at the Dunn Bros. in Apple Valley. Author Clare Louise Harmon will be reading from her book, “The Thingbody,” at 1:00.
“In the wake of an act of focused violence, a woman experiences an obsessive-compulsive breakdown that leads her into treatment, leaving her to assemble disparate elements—musical performance, feminist phenomenology, Herman Melville, and more—into a map of her escape route. Blending a radical approach to rhythm and language with experiments in typography, aleatory, and the limits of textual form, Clare Harmon’s debut collection Thingbody charts her titular heroine’s journey from trauma and self-destruction toward a sustainable mode of being.”
