Join us for the launch of Kay Gabriel’s Kissing Other People or the House of Fame.
7pm, Friday 19 November, 2021
600 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Featuring additional readings by Diana Hamilton, Hannah Black, and Becca Teich.
A book in two halves, Kissing Other People or the House of Fame opens with a sequence of poems that roam the grotty, sublime streets: patting rats, reading pamphlets, enduring labour, acquiring falafel, waving to friends. Then the book flips on a seam and invokes Chaucer as an unlikely guide through a series of dream-blocks, each autonomous yet resonant with attachments and perversions as they come and go, repeat and echo.
