Cordite Books welcomes you to the launch of Elena Gomez’s debut poetry collection, Body of Work.

It will be launched by Ann Vickery, emceed by Matthew Hall, and with guest readings from Bella Li and Manisha Anjali.

Read Fiona Hile’s introduction to the book here.

Says Juliana Spahr, ‘Elena Gomez asks the right questions in this book. Some of them are about emotions. And some of them are about capitalism. And some of them are about small animals. And she also gives us good advice: beware of bosses, landlords, and uniformed officers. At other moments she reminds us that capitalism causes rather than alleviates the crisis of hunger while at the same time reminding us of the pleasures of two minute noodles.’
