THE CHIPS ARE DOWN HERE IN LOCKDOWN by Carolyn Hashimoto
153 x 230mm, 16 pages, full colour printing, saddle stitched, 2021
Too delicious to be taken in through a single reading, Carolyn Hashimoto’s work is intricate, extreme, layers upon layers of poetry upon visual art upon poetry, each page revealing itself more and more through each time it is taken in. The Chips are Down Here in Lockdown is a champion work of experimental poetry, pushing the limits of form, texture, subject, and space. It is gripping, lovable, heart-wrenchingly honest…. an absolute must read!
