A new review of Brandon Shimoda's The Girl Without Arms recently appeared in Zoland Poetry. The reviewer considers "how a book determines its being remembered," in this case, "the small and bodily sense of love and wanting love and wanting love to be more than it can ever be in full." Read the review here.
Read The Girl Without Arms and find yourself craving more? Brandon's latest book is O B O N, released by Litmus Press in November. Of O B O N Brandon says
O Bon was written from 2005 through 2007
in the skin of inland seas and migration, fire and dementia,
corpses and corpse eaters, the memory of the Shimoda Family
and the Obon Festival in Japan
It was written alongside my first book, The Alps.
