K.I. Press -- Book Launch

Thursday May 07 2015 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove

Launch of Exquisite Monsters (Turnstone Press).

With vicious wit, K.I. Press pries open the intimacies of our lives in her collection of poetry, Exquisite Monsters. Fearless and weird, she splays open motherhood and mourning, laying them cheek by jowl next to biomechanical androids, and explosions of pop culture myths.

And with every copy of Exquisite Monsters, enjoy your very own phantasmagorical, gender defying, reconfigurable, exquisite monster making machine. Perforated for her/his pleasure.

K.I. Press grew up in Edmonton and in the Peace River country of northern Alberta. She has also lived in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto. She now lives in Winnipeg. Her previous work have received much critical praise and been shortlisted for the Pat Lowther and ReLit Awards. Exquisite Monsters is Karenís fourth collection of poetry.

The ordinary becomes the extraordinary in K. I. Press's latest collection of poems, Exquisite Monsters. Filled with gods, monsters, saints and small children, Press draws together myth, magic and the forces of science Press to examine the power of creation and the creatures that lie beneath the skin. She peers into our blood and bones and teases out the beasts that bury themselves inside our minds. With precision, K. I. Press conjures fantastic images and constructs an elegant poetic machine for her readers.
