New from Brenda Iijima: Glossematics, Thus

Brenda Iijima’s Glossematics, Thus is just out with Propolis Press’s Least Weasel Chapbooks series and can be purchased here.

Jamie Townsend says: “In conversation with Jacques Derrida’s grammatology, Brenda Iijima’s exuberant Glossematics, Thus breaks open personal narrative to unravel the myriad global, political, biological, and economic resonances of any local event. Brimming over with a full presence of speech, the experiential world is rediscovered as constituent parts of expression expanding outwards, non-hierarchical and beyond measure.  Through an acrobatic routine of polysemantic shifts, restless sonics, and rigorous rhetorical play, Iijima explores both time and perspective as palimpsistic, and thus as embodied, embedded within the flesh. By apprehending somatically, as sensory impressions and memory collide in the central nervous system

Michael Cross says even more in his review of the book, which can be read at The Disinhibitor.
