The winner of the 2018 Slope Book Prize, Our Pornography and other disaster songs was chosen by jury member Ocean Vuong, who writes:
Our Pornography is a crystalline, dusky and charmingly stubborn American text whose power rests in its desire to complicate linear time into a constellation of epicenters. This myriad-voiced long poem embraces the detritus and paraphernalia of its moment, and ushers it all, like a river carrying the grit and sparkle, truth and secrets of its undertows, toward a future not yet accounted for because the present still promises discovery. And what discoveries here in these staccato and ruptured lines that, despite everything, find a way to offer the world anew.
The design relies on overlapping all-caps ITC Galliard for headlines, and the same typeface for the text.
