Poetry. Lisa Fishman's sixth book of poetry is centered on bodies and where they are in relation to each other—whether a body is of plant; of person; or of words, and whether a body is personal or civic; singular or collective; alive or dead. The contradictions of lyric unfold, in this most unconventional elegy, by means of perception so steady it can change. 24 PAGES AND OTHER POEMS extends backward and forward, with the presence of many, such as John Clare and Friederike Mayrőcker, helping along the way.
Lisa Fishman is the author of MAD WORLD, MAD KINGS, MAD COMPOSITION (Wave Books, 2020), 24 PAGES AND OTHER POEMS (Wave, 2015), FLOWER CART (Ahsahta Press, 2011), Current (Parlor Press, 2011), THE HAPPINESS EXPERIMENT (Ahsahta, 2009), and DEAR, RED (Ashsahta Press, 2002). A North American writer (US and Canadian), Fishman is working on dividing her time between Wisconsin, where she currently lives, and somewhere across the border.Author City: ORFORDVILLE, WI USA
