The World According to Ms Erasure: Exercises in Zen Lyric
- About the Author
Authored by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, The World According to Ms Erasure offers calming ways for you to get to know your self, through meditative introspection and deep intimations. These prompts combine the powerful tools of narrative and Gestalt therapy, where creative expression may be used to help personal healing. The book has been praised by Chris Mooney-Singh, Jessica Faleiro, Martha Silano, and Patricia Matsueda.
This collection is one offering within the Primer Life Series, a suite of books that celebrates the shared text. Peppered with a prime number of poems, each collection remains thematically unique, with each poem faced with a blank page on its right. The invitation to the reader is to fill in the gaps, the existential caesurae, between the poems. From this peculiar hypothesis of the suppositional-collaborative, a conversation begins. It is a conversation that exists because authors exist, because readers exist. It is a conversation steeped in the dialogic imagination, one that would make Bakhtin nod approvingly, and then smile.
Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé is the author of an epistolary novel, a hybrid work, a neo-noir proem suite, and six poetry collections. Founding editor of Squircle Line Press, Desmond has edited over fifteen books and co-produced three audio books, several pro bono for non-profit organizations.
