"The stories of women who marry and provide all manner of support to a famous (male) poet / painter / writer are, if not silenced, often not heard enough. Susan Kay Anderson has brought one such story to light in Please Plant This Book Coast to Coast. It is a remarkable feat." –America Hart, author of into the silence: the fishing story
“The genre-defying genius of Saturation Project brings memoir and essay to the land of myth. Here, the wildness of what we experience, that which cannot be controlled but controls nonetheless, finds expression through etherealizing and visceral saturations of the body: a feral, humming, windswept girlhood mapped with uncharted brilliance.” —Claudia Rankine.

A carnivorous ferris wheel, exploding chickens, a theme park that’s home to a god, and a centuries-old Spanish ship found in the Texas hill country. More Enduring for Having been Broken includes stories of children abandoned, forgotten, and ignored, their trauma and the desperate need to survive it. Whether it’s living in a rusted stingray above a tourist shop in coastal Florida, feeding faces to monstrous catfish in the bayou, maintaining a derelict and fog-shrouded hotel in South America, or escaping through the labyrinthine caves of Crete, the boys and girls in this collection weather their aloneness in a world touched by the strange and fantastical.
