A young girl is licked raw by a panther’s tongue; a 116 year-old man checks his answering machine; genitalia are morphed and re-imagined. The stories of Thirteen Intimacies are uncanny in the truest sense: strangely familiar. ‘Intimacy’ becomes corporeal, metaphysical, animal, all at once. Katie Farris’s prose pieces, sometimes categorised as ‘flash fiction’, are known hybrids of fairytale, mundanities, myth and biology, emerging from a writer who straddles many disciplines.
Fivehundred places is a press established by Jason Dodge in an attempt to bring new readers to some of the poets that have been so important to his thinking and working over the past decades.
With a single printing of 500 copies, each book will find itself in one of 500 places.
Each Fivehundred places book also features a Dead Scissor by Paul Elliman on its cover.
