The next release from The Green Lantern Press is a new collection of contemporary fables from Erica Walker Adams. The collection sounds fascinating, it “documents the parallel fortunes of one protagonist living multiple lives. As she navigates her Märchen landscape, she goes through varied transformations, becoming at times a wolf, a thief, an amputee, a hunter, a rabbit and a runaway. She sleeps with swans and suffers a sister that bites the back of her knees. The world of this book is unstable, delicious and carries with it an inexplicit sense of danger.”
The Mutation of Fortune will be printed in an edition of 500 with silk screen covers by Aay Preston-Myint. It also will feature a series of color plate collages by Adams.
Green Lantern will celebrate the release of this collection on May 7th at 6pm with a reading at their storefront location featuring Rowland Saifi, Jen Larson, Caroline Picard, and the band Names Divine will perform passages from or inspired by the book.
