Drawing Breath: Essays on Writing, the Body, and Grief
PRE-ORDER NOW! Release Date: Feb. 7, 2023
In Drawing/Breath: Essays on Writing, the Body, and Grief, PEN/Bellwether Prize-winning writer Gayle Brandeis’ essays explore both the writing life and the embodied life, along with potent intersection between the two. From the title essay investigating the connection between writing and breath to the final essay, which delves into Brandeis’ experience with long-haul Covid and its impact on her creative voice, this collection is infused with the urgency of mortality, thrumming with grief, authenticity, and a deep love for both language and the world of the senses.
