BORA BORA BORA Book Release
This weekend at the Miami Book Fair, EXILE Books releases its newest title, BORA BORA BORA, the first poetry collection by Daniel Feinberg. A book of experimental and mimetic fantasies, as well as the author’s everyday, almost confessional, Miami: the beach, the sun, the moon, nightclubs and nothingness, eros and emptiness. Through poetry, prose poetry, and science fiction, BORA BORA BORA approaches a multitude of subjects and subjectivities while always returning to and repeating the landscape’s elemental forces. Wavering between contemporary Miami hip hop and radical French philosophy, transgender activism and environmentalist nihilism, from rented Lamborghinis to Rimbaud’s drunken boat, from new desert Jewish mysticism to ennui African cyber noir, these are the dreams and nightmares of Floridian late capital. Feinberg crafts a language to observe an ecology where the coexistence of endless desire and inevitable disappearance reaches a metaphysical apotheosis in the romantic lyric. Catch Feinberg at our lounge all day Saturday for an opportunity to discuss his latest work.
