Poetry. Art. Photography. Candice Wuehle's DEATH INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX is a meditation on the cultural obsession with the bodies of dead women and an occult invocation of the artist Francesca Woodman. Like Woodman's photographs with their long exposures and blurred lenses, this book is haunted and haunting, hazey yet devastatingly precise. These are poems as possessions, gothic ekphrases, dialogues with the dead, biography and anti-biography, a stunning act of "cryptobeauty."
Candice Wuehle holds an MA in literature from the University of Minnesota as well as an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. She recently earned a doctorate in Creative Writing at The University of Kansas, where she was the recipient of a Chancellor's Fellowship.
