  • $ 12.00


List of Consonants is a list of consonants with intervening vowels. The book is an ambient novella that explores what Wilson Harris calls "community-in-creator" by merging from-scratch text with found text and asking "what exactly is the difference?" By treating their own from-scratch text as though a stranger had written it, abreu shows how little we know ourselves, and performs an authorial petite mort in honor of their friend, who died by suicide in 2013.
