Pepper Luboff's And when the time for the breaking (Ark Press 2013)

"Pepper Luboff is so brilliant it breaks my heart. Get a copy of her chapbook. Weep, rejoice. Rinse, repeat. It's the sort of work that I find totally generative--it propels me to respond."
                -Joseph Massey

Ark Press is thrilled to announce the arrival of our second limited edition chapbook, Pepper Luboff's And when the time for the breaking (Letterpress Printed on 100 lb. Mohawk Superfine Paper. Metallic gold vellum fly sheet). Visually and linguistically acrobatic, And when the time for the breaking meditates on the fracturing, "can't say uh-merica / without splintering" ("Versus"), and resilience of community in Oakland and the surrounding San Francisco Bay area as it calls us to consider our culpability to one another:
if we
look into
the ingredients (makers &
pasts) of
those around us
words we reproduce
our laws & manners
places we work & live
what we wear & eat
how to go about it
either, or, or as ("the lack of distance, a kind of closure")
