Kind
Cover of Kind featuring a piglet wearing a dog mask and a small dog wearing a pig mask, painting by Dana Ellyn.

Welcome to the new KIND! Lantern Press has created a hardcover version with TEN new poems from me, as well as a foreword from Tim Seibles and color plates inside from painters Dana Ellyn, Jane O'hara, and Gus Mueller.

It'd be a pleasure to ship any number you'd like for $3.50 per address. All copies will be signed, but if you'd like specific inscriptions, put instructions in the notes section.

"This book is essential reading."

Kazim Ali, author of Northern Light

"It is this poet's calling to hold kindness and its opposite in tension...A lyrical language of the present tense evokes a fierce and tender impatience with what should never have been settled for."

Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat

"Each poem dissolves and reshapes these divisions with inexhaustible empathy and a ferocious determination that pleads-yea, even demands-kindness for all living beings."

Nickole Brown, author of To Those Who Were Our First Gods and The Donkey Elegies

"When I read Gretchen Primack's poems I was starstruck instantly. How could someone crystallize my own feelings about animals and humanity so beautifully, so powerfully, and so poignantly?"

Marisa Miller Wolfson, Vegucated filmmaker and author of The Vegucated Family Table
