Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. Memoir. SUPPOSE MUSCLE, SUPPOSE NIGHT, SUPPOSE THIS IN AUGUST explores how anxiety and escape can shape a life from childhood to adulthood. This hybrid of lyrical essays and poetry weaves a delicate thread across the country, through dreams and nightmares, euphoria and fear, and intimacy and distance, always with particular attention to form and language. With dreamlike imagery, a unique inventiveness, and emotional clarity, the collection dissects that which we are too afraid to touch in our waking hours.
