Of (What Place Meant) By Kenning Jean-Paul Garcia (New Book For Sale 2020)

OF (What Place Meant) is both a frenetic outpouring and a measured micro-portrait of a writer at odds and in love with writing, gratuitously denying and defying genre in bursts of commanding lyricism. García’s book-length experiment with daily writing is as at home with humor as it is with mourning—the conduit of feeling always at the pulse of this ambitious collection. OF tells the story-not-story of a writer-not-writer who must go on living-not-living.
