Nadia de Vries' debut collection opens with the standard disclaimers: These poems are a work of fiction.The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it are the work of the author’s imagination. Yet what arises from the author’s imagination is a world of reclaimed fairy tales, a “technological sublime,” the fine arts rendered into the dark arts, and girlhood engineered as a contagion, insinuating itself into the sickly heart of the patriarchy to launch its fatal attack. Dark Houris a countdown in verse, to that moment when the author’s imagination reveals itself as our new reality, and during which we learn to fine-cut poetry into pocketknives and poison. May your fears become abundant like girls.
- Mia You, author of I, Too, Dislike It (1913 Press, 2016)
Nadia de Vries lives in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Dark Hour is her first full-length book.
