To celebrate the release of Weeping Gang Bliss Void Yab-Yum, Devendra Banhart will be visiting us here in Chicago! Sunday April 28 at 3pm he will sit for a live interview with our publisher, Tim, and then will sign books. The event is free and you can get details/RSVP on the CAA website.
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!
