THE WORD PRETTY • Elisa Gabbert
Black Ocean / 2018
Paperback / 158 pages

In The Word Pretty, Elisa Gabbert brings together humor and observational intelligence to create a roving and curious series of lyrical essays on writing, reading, and living. Combining elements of criticism, meditation, and personal essay, this book reveals a poet's attention turned to subjects from translation to aphorism, from unreliable memory to beauty and the male gaze.
