Amusements & Useful Devices from K. A. Wisniewski
In December, Calypso Editions published Lullaby for a Hanged Man by Hubert Klimko-Dobrzaniecki (and translated by Julia and Peter Sherwood). Calypso is happy to report that Hubert and Julia are coming state-side later this month for three readings: These events are co-sponsored by The Polish Cultural Institute.
Acclaim for While Everything Slipped Away From Me
“While Everything Slipped Away From Me is a story about grief, love and loss. It speaks of unbearable tragedy. This is a collection of lyrical poems about the aftermath of 9/11. How can one go on when one loses the love of one’s life? This collection delves into that question. Perhaps out of grief something beautiful can grow.” —Nin Andrews
“Lutzner approaches the unapproachable space that is what of which was once whole. Here we share our skinned knees in ash. We eat the news like it is a mass processed mechanical attribute. She writes, ‘tell me how to capture sadness.’ The story is one of a true love, lost in 9/11; one of desolation and divinity.” —Jillian Mukavetz
This week, I’ve been working on the design of our next catalog, attached below. We are officially sending this out next week. And like previous years, Calypso will have a table at the book fair at the upcoming AWP Conference, held this year in Los Angeles from March 30 to April 2. More information about these works, news, and upcoming events can be found at http://www.calypsoeditions.org/.
