It's Publication Week!

This Is A City comes out this Friday (6/12) from Ravenna Press. Thank you to Kim Chinquee & Ryan Ridge for the generous blurbs.

“This Is A City is a world of genius parts. Like puzzle pieces, each inhabiting its own beauty, making an expansive whole. Each we, each you, each I in this universe adds to the collective whole of this book, along with each thrilling detail. The normal everyday lives of these characters become not normal, not everyday, but full of linguistic and extraordinary surprises. In this book, Parker Tettleton creates a new and original collage of worlds, of words, a lovely and refreshing mix, a geographical twist.” – Kim Chinquee, author of Wetsuit and Shot Girls

“From the brilliant and mad mind of Parker Tettleton comes This Is A City, a sprawling metropolis of postmodern prose poems constructed out of the building blocks of life: desire and love latticed with interminable strangeness and vegan cuisine. If this book were an actual city, I’d pack my bags fast and speed through the night towards it, but since it’s not I’ll reread it instead.”—Ryan Ridge, author of American Homes and New Bad News
