MFA BOOK ALERT!
NMSU MFA graduate Krystal Languell is now available in print! Call the Catastrophists can be purchased from Blazevox or any of your favorite retailers. (Photo credit: Pieter van Hattem--from a recent article in Poets and Writers Magazinewhere she discusses our MFA.)
When we discuss Krystal, it's along these lines...
"Krystal Languell traverses memory and desire with a tough-minded concern for language’s (in)ability to mean. Place and language collide, collude, and collapse everywhere, producing subversions of the order/system of all things: catastrophe pervades. Call the Catastrophists interrogates—colloquially, effortlessly—the damage done to us by language. There is perhaps no greater challenge for the poet, and perhaps no better poet to engage it than Languell." —Carmen Giménez Smith
