New title Sweet Nothing available at TC Book Fest!

The Twin Cities Book Festival is happening on Saturday, October 15 at 10am. Stop by the Spout Press table to say hello and to pick up our newest title, Sweet Nothing by Kazim Ali!

In Sweet Nothing, Kazim Ali finds, just beneath the details of daily life, the presence of spiritual reality. A corner of the street, a gesture of the hand, the pattern on a rug, all act as evidence of a generative emptiness. Sweet Nothing documents those details in a language of charmed engagement, and claims language, whether prayer, monologue, or poem, as our most prized of veils over the abyss, as the beauty that grows from sweet nothing and the technique of linking one life with another. Ali’s passionate attention explores the lyric truth of being alive, moment by moment.
