Our Reincarnated is now available at Reading Frenzy in Portland!
While in Portugal, artist Nico Huijbregts and I decided to see what would happen when you pair story with piano. Listen to “Remedy,” originally published in the Kenyon Review, and it’s very own improvised score by Nico! Sometimes collaboration allows for new perspective on work and new interpretations.
For the month of August, I’m spending three weeks at Obras Art Residency in Evora Monte, Portugal. In the beautiful countryside among the cork trees and orange moon.
When the days are as hot as can be, life can feel a bit romantic. It’s an authentic kind of heat, to sweat through and indulge in. I’ve found a place to write beneath a tree that is said to be magical, a resident told me. Brings ideas. It has a metal bench, a desk, and sometimes a one-eared cat Flore.
We come together in the evenings for a shared dinner, wine and stories. You really don’t need much else.
Desiree Andrews & I do a round-up of our favorite literary podcasts over at the Front Porch Commons, a bloggy project of [clmp]. Treat your ears here!
The talented editors at ELJ Publications have accepted my story collection, Our Reincarnated, for publication in Fall 2016. More info coming soon!
“Hannah Pass writes like light on water. She comes in at a long angle, with glints of mystery in the unseen. What seems playful has unexpected lasers, burning bright with significance. Our Reincarnated is a seditious marvel.” – Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
“Hannah Pass’s stories crackle along at hummingbird speed, lean and sassy-smart and delightfully off-kilter. Whichever way you’re looking, they come in a different door. Hannah Pass is a young writer to watch. In the meantime, treat yourself to Our Reincarnated.” – David Long, author of The Uninhabited World
“Get ready to be charmed, seduced, to fall into Hannah’s just off kilter take on what becomes her very own wide, wild world. You’ll long to have her connect you to her reincarnated lover, you’ll want to tour the Snow Exhibition with her, share the Ferris wheel as the bison cavort below. Every line shows her talent, her smarts, her golden heart. She’s the best guide you’ll ever have.” – Pete Fromm, author of If Not For This
