Take Those Gorgeous Feelings To The Underground National
Juliette's 2nd book is now out on Factory School & you can buy it here
Here's a brief description of the book from SPD, "In her second book-length collection, Sueyeun Juliette Lee suggests that suicide, K-pop, tourism, and atomic explosions have emerged as expressions of the forces upholding untenable national imaginations. Go underground with her and enter into a subterranean consideration of how History collides with human memory to generate new, unseen currents for being."
SJL is the author of the previous collection, That Gorgeous Feeling which I reviewed here.
You can also check SJL out on the newest issue of Rabbit Light Movies over here.
& here's the PennSound link which has a bunch of Juliette's readings recorded.
Factory School is pleased to announce the publication of Heretical Texts, Volume 5:
1. TOWN, by Kate Schapira (70 pages): How we live differently in the same world, who we mean when we say we, what we mean when we say here.
2. Green-Wood, by Allison Cobb (166 pages): Wanders Brooklyn’s famous nineteenth century Green-Wood Cemetery and discovers that its 500 acres--hills and ponds, trees and graves--mirror the American landscape: a place marked by greed, war, and death, but still pulsing with life.
3. Underground National, by Sueyeun Juliette Lee (108 pages): Go underground and enter into a subterranean consideration of how History collides with human memory to generate new, unseen currents for being.
4. House Envy of All the World, by Simone White (78 pages): Family, death, power, Poetry and blackness---each is implicated in a general failure of perfection and subjected to furious lyric re-thinking.
5. The City Real & Imagined, by CAConrad & Frank Sherlock (100 pages): Visit landmarks that remain standing, revisit citizens that live on in memory, and participate in the future mappings of your city yet to be realized--the city real & imagined.
