Celebrate the Release of Nathan Hok's "The Narrow Circle"

Local poet Nathan Hok will be joined by friends, and fellow poets, Jennifer Karmin and Catherine Theis, to celebrate the recent release of Nathan's new book, The Narrow Circle.In associative lyrics and fabulist prose, Hoks explores inner and outer
experiences. The poems frequently focus on the body as a membrane where
everything becomes inside-out—where the “face disperses with angels of
teeth and loam,” where “sky comes out of the mouth,” where a giant green
worm “burrows a hole in the head,” and where the heart is a vestibule
that cannot be closed. Suites of pictures within the text further
delineate this inward-outward pull, offering visualizations of interior
voices and sketches of exterior shadows.
