Ubermütter’s Death Dance

Blazevox Books

Forthcoming Spring 2016

There is no way to make sense of a senseless death, but in Ubermutter’s Death Dance, Laura Hinton engages the senses to stay alive and to find, if not meaning, then some sort of vital force in the midst of tragedy. Hinton’s heterogeneous yet unified collection combines the rhetoric of documentation and daily life with the lyricism of dreams, visions and ritual. The result is profound, moving and mercurial.
— Joanna Fuhrman, author of The Year of Yellow Butterflies

"Once there was a time, before this and before that, a time of metaphoric remembrances and repetitions, virtual rehearsals ... Funny outrageous dark dreams are real, wherein a smaller point size of type determines infinities ... the radical 'I' was an Orpheus who did not turn around but instead rhymes 'bleak' with 'chic.'  Suddenly there are gorgeous enhanced images ... the encounter is like no other Sisyphus."               -- Norma Cole
