We’re releasing Devendra Banhart’s first book of poems, Weeping Gang, Bliss Void, Yab-Yum, in spring 2019!
Devendra calls it the most personal work he’s ever created, weaving together awed autobiographical sketches which set the reader free in an imaginative wilderness—in turns surreal, pious, silly, and heartbreaking.
Though a few poems date back to his time in San Francisco 20 years ago, the majority began with a breakup in New York City in 2014, a move to the west coast, dealing with the tragic suicides of two people close to him, and travels across India and Japan.
Sound like your own life? Probably not. But have you ever wondered what it’s like to be yourself? This book!
