Baby Geisha to Hit Bookstores on January 13January 9, 2012 2:00 pm Brenda Layman
Trinie Dalton’s latest book, Baby Geisha, is a dreamlike montage of stories that manage to be both prose poetry and descriptive narrative, and somehow make it work. Deeply sexual and subtly alluring, these stories pull the reader into a world that is just a bit more fantastic than reality allows—or is it?
Trinie Dalton has authored and/or edited five books. Wide Eyed (Akashic), Sweet Tomb (Madras Press), and A Unicorn is Born (Abrams) are works of fiction. Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is (McSweeney’s, co-edited with Eli Horowitz and Lisa Wagner) and Mythtym (Picturebox) are art compilations. She writes articles and reviews about books, art, and music. Some of these are collected at sweettomb.com.
Fans of fiction that challenges expectations won’t want to miss this collection. Published by Columbus’s own Two Dollar Radio, Baby Geisha is scheduled for release on January 13, 2012. For more information, contact Eric Obenauf at [email protected].
