Reaching for my Gnu: Anna’s poetry book now an eBook

Aaaargh! Press has published Reaching for my Gnu, Anna Chen’s collection of poetry, for Kindle. Out in good old-fashioned analogue hard copy very soon.


“THE POEMS IN THIS COLLECTION are graceful, muscular, playful, rich in both emotional depth and intellectual rigour; brimful of righteous anger and piercing wit; intent on revitalising both the truism that ‘the political is personal’ and its obverse – that the personal is political – by gleefully annihilating any notional barriers remaining between the two, or between the general and the particular.

If you’re reading this and you’ve never seen Anna Chen perform, you’re in for a treat now and and an even bigger one when you see her live. If, on the other hand, you bought this because you’ve just seen her read … you’ll be picking out some new favourites and hoping she does ‘em next time you see her. Enjoy. I already have.”
Charles Shaar Murray
