My chapbook 'Yell' published by C&R Press is officially available for order at a reasonable, and democratic, $10. 'Yell' was the 2018 Summer Tidepool Chapbook Contest Selection and joins a fabulous line-up of books by poets, fiction, and non fiction writers at C&R Press. C&R will also have copies available at AWP later this month.
Poet Bianca Stone called 'Yell' "chilling to the bone." Poet Jennifer Militello found it "seemingly quiet, yet seamed through with ferocity."
And this from the back of the book: "A page by page erasure of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper, Sousa’s Yell subverts and contemporizes the original story of an oppressed housewife, and would-be writer, driven mad. In this version, the heroine speaks of her repression and slow descent into the amnesia of self, before finally awakening to the many women she contains. Though her emancipation is preceded by something which resembles the madness of Gilman’s original, this shadow heroine ultimately claims her haunted, multifarious nature. She chooses liberation, surfacing from the nightmare conscious of her capacity for darkness and light; owning them both and fully awake."
