Movie Plots - Nick Admussen (Epiphany)

Movie Plots by Nick Admussen is an experimental chapbook, both in content and format. It features a series of disorientingly absorbing prose poems that take thirty different film genres as points of departure for riffs on identity, the imagination, the meaning and coherency of life, and even more indefinable matters. Sample plots are available online at epiphany: Read a sample

But that's just half of the book's unique story. The book is published as "book kit", which consists of 1) a printer-ready PDF, 2) a limited-edition letterpress cover and 3) an instruction. There is a how-to-build-your-book-pages with trailer and guidelines online at Printing your book kit.

Nick Admussen is a doctoral candidate at Princeton University, currently researching contemporary Chinese prose poetry and living in Los Angeles. His poetry has most recently appeared in the Kenyon Review Online, Barrow Street, the Mid-American Review, and Blackbird.

About Ephiphany
Epiphany is committed to publishing literary work in which form is as valued as content: "We look for writing, wherever it may fall on the spectrum from experimental to traditional, that is thoroughly realized not only in its vision but also in its commitment to artistry. We are especially open to writers whose explorations of new territory may not yet have found validation elsewhere."
