The Chaos of Longing
|Author:||K. Y. Robinson|
Organized in four sections - Inception, Longing, Chaos, and Epiphany - K.Y. Robinson's debut poetry collection explores what it is to want in spite of trauma, shame, injustice, and mental illness. It is one survivor's powerful testimony, and a love letter "to those who lie awake burning." * This completely revised edition contains 50 pages of all-new material. * In its first year, the self-published edition of The Chaos of Longing sold 7,000 physical copies and 2,000 digital copies. * A woman of color, abuse-survivor, and sufferer of mental illness, Robinson speaks to and for an underheard population. * Amanda Lovelace, author of the best-selling the princess saves herself in this one is a major supporter of Robinson's work and will promote her book online.
