Collective Regeneration and Universal Love

Publication Date: September 2015


In June of 2023, Black Lawrence Press welcomed numerous existing and forthcoming Nomadic Press titles to our catalogue. Collective Regeneration and Universal Love was originally published by Nomadic.

Collective Regeneration and Universal Love is a poetic ethnography of American urban life, narrated by a desperate ensemble of flâneurs looking for connection around all the wrong corners.

Inspired by the urban prose poetry of Grzegorz Wróblewski, whom Marjorie Perloff has described as “the true poetic chronicler of our 21st century diaspora in all its absurdities and anxieties,” the chapbook will also appeal to fans of Agustín Fernández Mallo’s Nocilla Trilogy and California noir.
