Extraordinary Praise for Bough Down by Karen Green


June 15th, 2013


A wholly original evocation of love and loss, artist and writer Karen Green’s Bough Down has earned a passionate following of readers and critics alike for its emotional honesty, creative ingenuity, and an unwavering eye. An expansive, uncategorizable work, it has a singular power to inspire conversation not only about the articulation of grief, but also about art — in its complexity rather than simplicity — as a restorative act, about the nature of public and private selves, and about what literature can be, can do.

A limited number of first edition copies are still available directly from Siglio. The second printing (within just a few months of the book’s release) will be available soon at bookstores and online retailers.
