Advanced Praise for Violence/Joy/Chaos
“The snippets of Jane Marshall Fleming’s life in Violence/Joy/Chaos is woven together to create an honest, open space to discuss universal themes, such as motherhood, substance abuse, and toxic relationships. Despite its moments of darkness, Fleming shows readers the sliver of light with organic transitions between poetry and the prose of her essays. The collection is at its strongest basking in these moments of light, and her ‘house speaks / And it speaks because [she] built it.’ The title for this collection is more than fitting, as Fleming shows us that between the moments of violence and chaos, there is always joy. “
— Keana Aguila Labra, Editor-in-Chief of Marías at Sampaguitas
For interviews, exclusive writing, and some really hot tea, visit the Luna Speaks Blog.
Over the next few months, Luna Speaks Blog will be hosting video performances created by authors and artists whose livelihoods have been disrupted by COVID-19. Each video will be accompanied by a mini-interview and a live Twitter and/or Instagram Q&A with the author/artist. This can’t take the place of a live event, but it will hopefully offer an alternative space to celebrate your work and promote the sales of your books.
