 Description:

Poetry. Women’s Studies. LGBT Studies. Hybrid Genre. Transgender Studies. Winner of the 2016 Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Poetry. Part prose poem, part disruptive narrative, succubus in my pocket is a posthumous masterpiece of textual flux and cultural critique from pathbreaking trans woman poet kari edwards. The author described it as a “troubling of the habitual life story at the edge of the recognizable.” “kari edwards’s SUCCUBUS IN MY POCKET is a masterwork against mastering, a tarrying recursive, fretting over how to write from life when life is so relentlessly displaced by its commodity form, a palinode to identity from its extimite extrusions, sloughing on and off simulacra, flaying the skim off ‘events, ‘ relooping seriality and tracing narrative’s affective ruses and too predictable disappointments. Talking to the taxman and the war machine and sex gender and the symbolic about poetry while turning a trick or laying down to hallucinate a line of flight rather than consolidate a happy story we might now call homonormativity or neoliberalism or white supremacy, SUCCUBUS is a most delicate and pissed and sad inhabitation of the available options and of their exorbitantly vital refusal.” Trish Salah”
