TRISTEN GASPADAREK’S

SATURNINE

Volume One of CTR Press’ Pocket Poetry Series

Cosmic Thug Press is proud to announce Volume One of the Pocket Poetry Series, Tristen Gaspadarek’s debut collection, Saturnine.

 

Saturnine marks the exciting arrival of a new voice in contemporary poetry. Gaspadarek’s poetry takes on a dystopian world where apathy uncovers empathy. Where, “the heart speaks kindness through the ugliness sometimes.”

 

Filled with 18 poems that span from the “green carpet hills by San Francisco” to the “cold hard streets of Chicago,” Gaspadarek’s collection brims with a kaleidoscope of characters — roadies, whitewashers, lost boys and big tits mary. Where existential dreamers in “Plastic Land” struggle to make sense of a modern age, “protesting the cruelest injustice of [their] day, the sickening smell of the Bourgeois Bouquet.”

 

Before now, Gaspadarek’s voice was most recognized via her music. With 2011’s folk-oriented Charlatans at the Garden Gate and the synth-centric pop of 2013’s CAVES — both released under the name Tristen — she gained notice as an artist with an exceptional ear for melody and a knack for astute lyricism. Outlets including NPR, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, KCRW and The Boston Globe have recognized Tristen’s skill as a songwriter and performer. Now the Chicago native and longtime Nashvillian turns her talents toward the written word, shrewdly dissecting our societal shortcomings, our cultural complacency, our dark motives, our inherent flaws.
