Pre-order: Ben Fama's Deathwish

20.00

New poetry from Newest York, now available for pre-order (ships last week of February).

Ben Fama's Deathwish drops us back into the beauty and the fantasies teased out in his first book Fantasy, re-braiding them through BDSM scenarios, metaphysical inquiries, and the maximalism of the contemporary.

Ben Fama’s “I” is a desolate seer; his “you” is us all; reading Deathwish is a role play. These sexy, uncluttered poems are love notes and accusations saturated with a personal/political heartsickness I find weirdly consoling. Fama’s vivid, semi-abstract renderings of moments within our terrible moments are gifts.

Johanna Fateman

Deathwish finds beauty in scarcity and drained resourcesnudes take up all the data, and brunch is a blackout. These poems want to die young, but instead live out the melancholy of endurance. I loved this book.

If your iPhone had any feelings it would write like Ben Fama.
