In this chapbook, Corey Mesler invokes the specter of a man known only as Mitmensch. Poem by poem, a variety of speakers construct a shadowy portrait of this man. Frustrated artist. Ruthless business man. Demi-god. Mitmensch’s “shifting geography” leaves all who come into contact with him guessing. Mesler’s wit and evocative language enhance this mystery, making Mitmensch rise from the pages “slowly, like a uniform unfolding” to reaveal himself to those brave enough to seek him.

Print copies are available to order from most booksellers.
