SPACECRAFT PRESS O16: “CUTIE” BY WEYMAN CHAN

DSC_0007Spacecraft Press is proud to announce the publication of Weyman Chan’s Cutie. A total of 30 copies were produced, 15 of which are for sale.

A ghost in a shell of words, Weyman Chan`s Cutie examines our obsession with
creating dolls, and the abusive possibilities inherent to the mechanization of femininity. Rife with rich and provocative language, the poem challenges us to examine our fixation on manufacturing beauty.

Weyman Chan was born in Calgary, Alberta, in 1963, to immigrant parents from China. Chan wrote his first poem when he was thirteen years old. He has published poems and short stories in a wide variety of literary journals and anthologies. He won the 2002 National Magazine Awards silver prize for his poem “At work,” and the 2003 Alberta Book Award for his first book of poetry, Before a Blue Sky Moon. His second book, Noise From the Laundry, was a finalist for the 2008 Governor General’s Award for Poetry and the 2009 Acorn-Plantos Award for People’s Poetry.

Cutie is available for $3.00 including domestic postage (+$1 non-Canadian postage). To order, please contact Ken Hunt at jkchunt@hotmail.com. Paypal is preferred. Money orders in CAN dollars are also accepted.
