    Book review: Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch

    Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch Aorta af Katarina Lewkovitch er en digtsamling fra forlaget Anarki, og Lewkovitchs tredje udgivelse. Det er en ganske lille digtsamling, med sammenhængskraft fra hjertet og mere specifikt hovedpulsåren (aorta). Jeg har modtaget et anmeldereksemplar af forlaget Anarki. Aorta – digtsamling Denne lille digtsamling er for det første smukt og gennemført lavet som bog. Det er en lille paperback i mørk grå, med sort tekst og en pulserende rød hovedpulsåre på forsiden. De første sider er mørkerøde og så mere dybrøde. Nøjagtig ligesom blod i forskellige nuancer. Det er altså ret gennemtænkt. Derudover er der faktisk ikke ret meget af det klassiske fyld i bogen.

    Book review: Stykker af Pil

    Bog anmeldelse af Stykker af Pil Stykker af Pil af Louise Lyngø er ifølge forlaget en genrehybrid. Det er en ganske lille sag på 43 sider. Jeg har modtaget et anmeldereksemplar af forfatteren mod en anmeldelse af bogen. Tak til Louise og forlaget Mellemgaard for anmeldereksemplaret. Stykker af Pil af Louise Lyngø “Stykker af Pil er en genrehybrid med en blanding af prosapartier og lyrik. Værket kredser om kvinden Pil, der en dag falder bevidstløs om på sin arbejdsplads. Læseren kommer herefter med på en rejse ind i Pils splittede indre, hvor fragmenter af fortrængt materiale, drømmelignende passager og gamle erindringer eksisterer side om side. Stykker af Pil kredser om…
