I am excited to spread the news that Khaty Xiong’s new chapbook, DEER HOUR, is now available from New Michigan Press as part of their 2014 chapbook series. I had the honor of writing a blurb for DEER HOUR, and have since been nothing but excited that it is out in the world. The book is ghostly, resistant, and moving. Xiong’s biography (below) is copied from a recent issue of interrupture.
