Next to Everything That Is Breakable is now available for pre-order from Finishing Line Press, described as “…a brilliant debut, blackberried and full…a book about growing up, about the pain of distance, inked with stamps, charging forward like a train that never stops. ” Visit her new site at https://karaknickerbocker.com, and read her LR essay, The Mark I Left.
  • Nonfiction editor, Nina Gaby, recently had this exchange with Elizabeth Gaucher.
