Ugly Duckling Presse is throwing a book release party at the Pierogi Gallery, 177 N. 9th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn tonight at 7:00 for three of their new Spring 2011 titles: Cursivism by Will Hubbard, The Hermit by Laura Solomon, and Applies to Oranges by Maureen Thorson.
UDP events are always a good time so if you find yourself in the area be sure to check it out. Below are blurbs and links for each of the books.
WILL HUBBARD grew up in North Carolina and lives in Brooklyn, New
York. His first book is Cursivisms (UDP 2011).
“Cursivism contains some of the best blasts of short prose I’ve read
in quite some time.” —GRAHAM FOUST
LAURA SOLOMON’s books include Bivouac (Slope Editions, 2002), Blue and
Red Things (UDP, 2007), and The Hermit (UDP, 2011).
“Laura Solomon’s poetry rescues love and language from the tendency to
reduce either to single, knowable facts by finding missing dimensions
of our awareness.” —Paul Killebrew
MAUREEN THORSON is a poet, publisher, and book designer living in
Washington, D.C. She is the author of a number of chapbooks, including
Novelty Act (UDP 2004). Applies to Oranges is her first full-length
“Maureen Thorson’s first full-length book is a necessary satellite
signal made of a uniquely singular ache and echo. She deftly performs
a precise dissection of heartbreak’s timeless ability to blow open the
universe of our lives and allow our fascinating agonies to burst into
being.” —ADA LIMON
