Take Jane home this March

Take all forty-one Janes home this March from Ahsahta. Tour dates to come! 

“Written in tandem with her short films, Carrie Olivia Adams’ Forty-One Jane Doe’s investigates the nature of desire and remorse through the prism of anonymity. Tuned with paradoxical introspection (‘Self or selfless, / I am in the way’), Adams’ lyrical sequences culminate in a savage title poem that declares, ‘It is the sin in me that says I.’ This bracing second collection weighs the parts of us that remain unknown, even to our confidants.” —James Shea

“I am in love with how Carrie Olivia Adams captures the visible and the invisible, how she wonders about pinpricks and stars, possibility and fate, how she demonstrates that seasons are incidents, snowflakes are clues. Her world is one of startling moments and minutiae, the mystery of the sublime and the mystery of the everyday. Her poetry reminds us to always pay attention, to always be in awe.” —Jenny Boully
