A collaborative interview between Karen George and Lauren Camp concerning their recently published works appears in the online journal The Bind.
“Karen George’s A Map and One Year (Dos Madres, 2018) is a collection composed from words found in poems by Dickinson, Neruda, and Transtromer, novels by Anthony Doerr and James Joyce, letters by van Gogh, and a diary of Frida Kahlo. It’s a dreamscape with a narrative arc that explores love, loss, memory, and transformation, threaded with images of connection to the natural world.”
“Lauren Camp’s Took House (Tupelo, 2020) is a disquieting book about intimate relationships and what is seen and hidden. The unknown appears and repeats, eerily echoing need. Blame, power and disorder hover, unsettling what we know of love.”
