Fragments, a new book by David Carl, will be released by The Green Lantern Press in May 2008. Fragments is an extended meditation on the sentence—an inquiry into how we make use of language to express our selves, and an investigation of how language helps shape and determine who and what those selves are.
Please join us for a reading, along with a question-and-answer session in the Great Hall on May 13 at 7 p.m. A reception and book signing will follow in the Senior Common Room.
Fragments is printed in a limited first edition of 500, with interior artwork supplied by Swedish artist Mathias Kristersson and original silk screen covers by Alana Bailey.
