Of Nectar by Amanda Turner

Winner of the 2015 Chapbook Fellowship

Selected and introduced by A. Van Jordan

It’s clear that this book is original both in the connections made between subjects—from Thomas Gainsborough to Black Lives Matter, from Hirokazu Koreeda to Noh theater, from Lou Reed to Gene Kelly—and in the quotidian scenes we see into more deeply— the assertions of a four-year-old, artifacts in the window of an antiquarian book store, tea in a small black pot—and, as a result, we come through the reading knowing more about ourselves.

—A. Van Jordan

Edition: 500 copies of the winning books were printed by the Prolific Group and designed by Gabriele Wilson, with covers by Ashley Goldberg.
