Location: Noyes Arts Garage

What better way to sink the old battleships of the world, than to bring them down together?

GIRL TORPEDO was selected by Allison Joseph for Agape Editions' 2017 Numinous Orison, Luminous Origin Literary Award. Of the collection Joseph writes: "Girl Torpedo is one brave book—it’s unafraid, unsentimental, brash but never stereotypically sassy—it’s a book to hold on to, to navigate all the savage seas of living with its 'seedy motels bound by bay and intercostal waterway.' Emari DiGiorgio’s sure steps and deft handling of this unstable mass of human life is so compelling that you’ll want more than one copy of Girl Torpedo. Get one for yourself, to keep at your bedside table. Get one for your best friend, or for any 'dangerous hum of a girl' you happen to know. DiGiorgio writes so beautifully that you’ll want hang on for the ride wherever her imagination takes her. She can even make a hammer sing! All hail Girl Torpedo!"
