Elisa Gabbert presents Normal Distance
In conversation with Brandon Taylor
Greenlight is delighted to celebrate the newest book of poems by acclaimed poet, critic, and essayist Elisa Gabbert (The Unreality of Memory), Normal Distance. In these funny, thought-provoking poems full of "places where anything can be anything and where what the poet feels intimately can still be everything" (Dorothea Lasky), Gabbert collects strange facts, interrogates language, and asks unanswerable questions that offer the pleasure of discovery on nearly every page. These earwormy, ultra-contemporary, aphoristic, and philosophical pages make up a book about thinking and feeling, meaning and experience, trees and the weather, and the boredom and pain of living through time. Gabbert joins us in Prospect Lefferts Gardens along with award-winning author Brandon Taylor (Filthy Animals) for a reading, discussion, Q&A, and book signing.
