The Knowledge Weapon by Annette C. Boehm
Annette C. Boehm won the Bare Fiction Debut Poetry Collection Competition 2015, as judged by award winning poet Andrew McMillan, and I’m very pleased to say that you can now order her prize-winning collection The Knowledge Weapon right here on our online store.
“Open the book on any page and try not to be impressed by the command of language, the dynamism of image, the thrill of subjects which are on offer.”
“In Annette C. Boehm’s stunning The Knowledge Weapon, false knowledge is inflicted—but quickly finds itself shredded by its own sword. This fierce debut collection explores our baroque relations with one another and with a savaged ecology. Can a book be both ominous and playful, both freeing and disturbing? Read this and know.”
Angela Ball, Professor of English at The University of Southern Mississippi
“The Knowledge Weapon is to be read for its acid imagery … you will find no one who sounds like Annette C. Boehm. Intelligent, radioactive and wicked.”
Gram Joel Davies – The Lake
