mg’s bibliography

Marco Giovenale (1969) lives and works in Rome. He writes in Italian and (sometimes in) English. Here are some notes about his English works. (And the vispo and asemic ones).

“a gunless tea”, collection of 23 prose fragments, was published in 2007 (Dusi/e-chap project, dusie.org: free download at http://www.dusie.org/gunlesstea.pdf, thanks to Susana Gardner).

“CDK” was published in 2009 as a chapbook & free e-book by Tir aux pigeons (download at http://www.lulu.com/items/volume_64/6596000/6596742/1/print/CDK.PDF, thanks to Drew Kunz).

The prose pieces of “anachromisms” won the Ahsahta Press Chapbook Prize (judge: K. Silem Mohammad) and the book has been published by Ahsahta in 2014: https://ahsahtapress.org/product/anachromisms/ (thanks to Janet Holmes).
