- THE DOROTHY HEWETT AWARD
By John Kinsella and Thurston Moore
The Weave is the second book collaboration between Thurston Moore and John Kinsella – dubbed a ‘work in progress’ by the two poets, the book guides readers through a world in decay, crafting an invigorating language of spontaneity and survival out of the destruction. Moore and Kinsella aren’t just observing – they implicate us all in the harms of global capitalism and environmental disaster, charting a back and forth between the individual and the crowd.

These poems start in Dolphy’s key + end with a quarryman’s dream. In between secrets are stored. See how many you can find.
