Welcome to my blog, with news on my books, critical essays, art, event announcements, and whatever else comes to mind.
I’ve recently completed a novel titled Like Lips, Like Skins; the German translation, Kreisläufe, was recently published by Literaturverlag Droschl (September 2021) and premiered at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Spuyten Duyvil published a second edition of my first book, A Lesser Day, in 2018; you can find ample material on the book here. The German translation, also published by Droschl, is titled Wie viele Tage and premiered at the Leipzig Book Fair the same year.
I spent the second half of 2020 editing a Corona issue at Statorec magazine, where I’ve been editor-in-chief for the past four years—we published an anthology from the issue titled Writing the Virus, which the New York Times Sunday Book Review selected as one of its “New & Noteworthy” titles of 2021.
I have written on art and literature for The Brooklyn Rail, The Rumpus, Quarterly Conversation, Music & Literature, Lute & Drum, The Scofield, manuskripte, Schreibkraft, Schreibheft, The Millions, the Times Literary Supplement, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, LitHub, and The American Scholar; I have worked as senior editor of the online arts journal Hyperion: On the Future of Aesthetics and write a monthly column for ThreeQuarksDaily.
I translate from the German language.
An excerpt from an ongoing project titled all about love, nearly was published in 2014 in the anthology Wreckage of Reason II, Experimental Women’s Fiction, Spuyten Duyvil Press; another anthology, titled Strange Attractors and edited by Edie Meidav and Emmalie Dropkin, came out in 2018 with UMass Press.
I am also a visual artist and have exhibited at institutions and commercial galleries internationally.
You can view some of my newer work in the menu category Visual Works above, which I will be updating in the weeks and months to come.
You can also view an archive of past work on my website at www.andreascrima.com.
