“You would have my explosions be localized and armed against themselves.
You would prefer I not discuss ‘men’ or ‘women.’ The genres.
It would be better to prevent the spread of the insurgency.”
A sequence of twenty-four interlinked pieces, WINDOWBOXING: A Dance with Saints in Three Acts by Kirsten Kaschock moves with both muscle and grace through its three acts of steadfast looking—at dance, grief, abuse, the streets of Philadelphia, and especially “the elaboration of woman.”
Excerpts from this work appeared in Antioch Review, BOMB Magazine, Chicago Review, Everyday Genius, Many Mountains Moving, and Otoliths.
Windowboxing: A Dance with Saints in Three Acts was the fifth chapbook in the 2012–2013 series from Bloof Books. Each chapbook in the series was released in a limited edition of one hundred numbered copies, followed by a digital release. Each chapbook is also eventually included in full in a compilation volume, Bound.
