Sit. Stay.: vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series (Paperback)
SIT. STAY (vol. I in the printpoetics chapbook series) is "a poetry chapbook for anyone who is a person and not a template." The printpoetics chapbook series offers thought provoking material condensed into tiny reads in a style far less delicate than what we are used to seeing in A.L.D. Chalom's previous work (see "ONE"- a poetry collection). The different volumes dissect "hot-potato" subjects such as social injustice, discrimination, abuse, stereotypes, sexuality, gender, LGBTQ issues, women's rights, feminism, racism, bullying, loss, drug use and abuse ... the list is endless and the series is an ongoing project, constantly adding volumes to the series. The chapbooks vary in style; some including poetry, some prose, some a mix. Trigger warning for books in this series: abuse, rape, non-censored language.
A.L.D. Chalom was born in Sweden in 1985 to a Swedish mother and American father. She grew up in Sweden, but moved abroad at the age of 19 and has since lived in Italy, France, Spain and in the UK, before returning to Sweden after over a decade living abroad.
