Pressed Wafer subscribers and poets Devin Johnston and Michael O’Brien sponsored the work of Nate Klug. The Wafer always listens to writers, a lesson learned at the feet of New Directions founder James Laughlin.
When this chapbook appeared Nate was a divinity student at Yale. In his blurb Devin Johnston caught the book’s spirit, “Praise and lament, both—twin strands of the mind’s consent.”
The cover that ascends into the sky’s depths is by Michael Russem.
