Poetry. LGBT Studies. Women's Studies. INSTANT CLASSIC is precisely that; as soon as you start reading it, you say, oh, yeah, of course, why didn't I think of that? Exploring the pathways of grammar-twisting, women's, queer poetry and poetics in a single form that encapsulates many possibilities, Kaufman's book is one of the few that links us all.
Erica Kaufman is the author of INSTANT CLASSIC (Roof Books, 2013) and CENSORY IMPULSE (Factory School, 2009), and the co-editor of NO GENDER: REFLECTIONS ON THE LIFE AND WORK OF KARI EDWARDS (Venn Diagram, 2009). Recent poems can be found online in Little Red Leaves and Elective Affinities, and in Lungfull!, The Death and Life of American Cities and Parkett. Prose and critical work can be found in: Rain Taxi, The Poetry Project Newsletter, Jacket2 and in The Color of Vowels: New York School Collaborations (ed. Mark Silverberg, Palgrave MacMillan, 2013).
