Synopsis

Poetry. Laura Moriarty writes of MICROCLIMATES, "[it is] not only a great first book, it is one of the most compelling, most symptomatic books of the new century." Bay Area writer, Taylor Brady is cutting-edge: "MICROCLIMATES is a genre-bending tour de force, a textual body in which Taylor Brady pushes all the pressure points of poetry, family saga, politics, scholarly apparatus, documentary, commonplace book, musicology. And with its recasting of epistolary tropes, it's sort of a DANGEROUS LIAISONS for the thinking man or woman. Expunged from a landscape of dream, MICROCLIMATES takes 'you to/ another earth/ entirely'"-Dodie Bellamy.
