Powell's Books Presents Melissa Broder in Conversation With Katherine Morgan
Superdoom (Tin House) brings together the best of Melissa Broder’s three cult out-of-print poetry collections — When You Say One Thing but Mean Your Mother, Meat Heart, and Scarecrone — as well as the best of her fourth collection, Last Sext. Embracing the sacred and the profane, often simultaneously, Broder, author of Milk Fed and The Pisces, gazes into the abyss and at the human body, with humor and heartbreak, lust and terror. Broder’s language is entirely her own, marked both by brutal strangeness and raw intimacy. At turns essayistic and surreal, bouncing between the grotesque and the transcendent, Superdoom is a must-have for longtime fans and the perfect introduction to one of our most brilliant and original poets. Broder will be joined in conversation by Katherine Morgan, bookseller and author of the debut chapbook, No Self-Respecting Woman.
