I’m super happy to announce that my fiction and photography chapbook, Gomorrah, Baby, is now available to pre-order from Anchor & Plume! For the pre-order period, it’s on sale for $10.
Gomorrah, Baby is a pocket book (4” by 6”), and you can read more about (and from) it over on the Anchor & Plume site.
It’s hard to describe how much this book means to me. I took the photographs and wrote the story over the course of some cold and snowy months, and it’s very much a book whose backdrop is the city in winter.
It’s a story about walking around and falling in love with the city of Saint Paul, about the stories and nightmares we create to imprint the city on our hearts, about being lost and getting lost, about walking and looking up and around.
I lived the story while I was walking around and photographing Saint Paul’s old buildings and ghost signs and Mississippi port-side cliffs. The cover image is one of many photographs included in the book. I fell (more) in love with the beautiful, horrible city while I wrote this book, and I discovered that city love thrives on both beauty and horror.
If you buy it, I hope you love it and use it to guide your own wanderings.
