Ann Sterzinger
NVSQVAM (nowhere)
Charleston, W.V.: Nine-Banded Books, 2011

We live in a time in which all positive ideologies of the past — be they Right- or Left-wing; good, bad, or ugly — are swiftly spiraling towards the chopping block of “the end of history.” It seems impossible, in today’s post-modern climate of perpetual intellectual suspicion, to sustain a rigorous attachment to any point of view Read more …
