Description


Red Epic invents a volatile poetry for a world on fire, written to illuminate the wreckage of the most recent gilded age. Leaping levels from global systems to street fights and back again, accompanied by a Top 40 soundtrack full of Robyn and M.I.A., it remixes utopian hope and revolutionary antagonism.

Lauded by sources from Judith Butler to Entertainment Weekly, Joshua Clover's poetry has received multiple honors including a Village Voice book of the year. He has written four books and contributed to the New York Times, the New Yorker, and GQ; his column "Pop and Circumstance" appears in the Nation. He teaches at the University of California Davis.
