Overview

"Kim's centaur debut is a constant notebook, humming with graffiti and gossip, bad jokes, great jokes, bodily functions, lyrics, juvenile glosses, sudden sadnesses. . . . She's her own A.D.D. Boswell, a self-mythologizing Korean American diva worth a thousand Margaret Chos."—The Village Voice, Top 25 Books of the Year, 2005

What People Are Saying

Stacy Doris
"Povel may not sound like a potentially revolutionary new form but it in fact is. This is because it, and its inventor Geraldine Kim, do far more than they outrageously lay claim to- or perhaps exactly what they claim- in any case charting consciousness through observation and at the same time remapping it through rigorous prosodic attention. Scientific evidence that hysterical symptoms are not only here to stay, but structure and control our perceptions, this book dares you to attend to it. Most highly recommended reading."
