REVIEWS & PRAISE
 

“The adage that poetry 'heals all wounds' is as damaging as the assumption that all wounds bleed. Healing, in the traditional sense, isn’t always an option ... Avant Gauze is a beautiful, chaotic, overflowing art object."

- Kina Viola for THE FANZINE

Ropewalk Press Editor's Award (2015)

PRAISE
 

“In overlapping and echoing scenes of impressionistic power, Friedlander weaves together moving moments of grief, trust, and responsibility. These beautifully inventive stories strike at once both the head and the heart.”

–Robert Rosenberg, This Is Not Civilization

REPEAT AFTER ME is a ferocious follow-up to AVANT GAUZE that approaches repair with a new sort of care. These two short pieces are mosaics of support and rescue, of familial love and labor, of public service and private grief. Christine Friedlander is a force who writes with an immediacy and necessity so rarely seen in prose these days, and REPEAT AFTER ME is proof that she’s here to stay.”

–Mark Cugini, I'm Just Happy To Be Here
