9780988732889: We Take Me Apart

2nd finalist for the 2011 Asian American Literary Award for Poetry
Shortlisted for the 2011 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry 
Nominated for the McLaughlin-Esstman-Stearns First Novel Prize 


"There is no more perfect place to be than in Molly Gaudry s tender, dirt-floored novella, We Take Me Apart. Oh cabbage leaves, oh roses, oh orange-slice childhood grins: this book broke my heart. Its sad memory-tropes come from fairy tales & childhood books. With language, Gaudry is as loving & careful as one is with a matchbook . . . when wishing to set the whole word on fire. --Kate Bernheimer, author of The Complete Tales of Merry Gold

"Molly Gaudry's debut evokes the spirit of iconic fairy tales that have transported readers for centuries. Her variations on these themes delineate the psychological journey from girlhood to womanhood. But We Take Me Apart is more than a retelling. In it, Gaudry reconstitutes the essence of what makes fairy tales compelling, and she does so imaginatively and with great attention to language, the earmarks of poetry."--Christopher Kennedy, author of Encouragement for a Man Falling to His Death

"In Molly Gaudry's We Take Me Apart, the ordinary becomes mythical, what may be autobiographical becomes a fable, and simple lines or sentences ring with ominous music. Even the empty space between the lines seems to resonate with invisible narrative. A stunning debut." -Richard Garcia, author of The Persistence of Objects
 
"Molly Gaudry's We Take Me Apart is a dazzleflage of a book. The stuttering disrupted language of this cubist concoction disappears before your ears, sinks into your eyes. This aggressive dress camouflage reweaves Gertrude Stein's rewoven grammar of worsted silk-screened gabardine into a fully ripped patois-ed pattern of stunning wonder."--Michael Martone, author of Michael Martone

About the Author :

In 2011, Molly Gaudry was shortlisted for the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry, and her verse novel, We Take Me Apart, was named 2nd finalist for the Asian American Literary Award for Poetry. In 2012, YesYes Books released the 3-author volume Frequencies, which includes her short fiction collection "Lost July." In 2014, The Cupboard released "Wild Thing," a collection of essays and poems about recovery after brain injury, and Ampersand Books reprinted We Take Me Apart in anticipation of the release of its sequel Desire: A Haunting and its prequel Remember Us. Molly is a core faculty member of the Yale Writers' Conference and is the founder of The Lit Pub. 

Review :

"If you consider her novella poetry, then it borrows much from prose. And if you see it as prose, it allows for a poetic flavor. Gaudry walks this line with great poise and in that poise we find her greatest strength as a writer." -The Broad Set Writing Collective
 
"Gaudry's work implies that life, at its most essential, is the memory of love, hope, and the rooms it has occupied. . . . We Take Me Apart is an exercise in empathy for the reader. It is pure song and story. This book is a gift." -[PANK]
 


"A Molly Gaudry word is so precise, it feels like a sentence." -Great Twin Cities Poetry Read & Road Show
 
"Molly Gaudry must have revised this gem of a novella over and over and over to get the wording, the rhythms, the images, etc. just so. . . . Not a word is out of place, nothing is missing, no extra words are added. Molly Gaudry has worked this section, and every other section in the book, to the very essence of what is necessary to capture her readers and not let them go." -Emerging Writers Network


"An epic poem of epic mastery, We Take Me Apart centers on a girl who grows into a woman who grows into a heroine." -Prick of the Spindle
 
"[Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian] is famous for its poetic prose and unflinching violence, but there's a void of femininity. . . . Enter Molly Gaudry. . . . [Her] prose, steeped in poetry as much as McCarthy's, spirals upward, elevating and exploding. The creators and destroyers, the beautiful and the gory, and the mythical and contemporary all thrive in balance." -Hobart


"Gaudry's mastery of language, [her] use of . . . silence, the wet white space around the burn of language, reads at times as if a character from Beckett had crawled or hobbled into a fairy tale--the kind of Beckett character that keeps his or her silence, only to suddenly wax eloquent in manic bursts." -Amber Sparks
 
"[We Take Me Apart] details grace. . . it will haunt like a remembrance of fragrance or swoosh of hair or panoply of mother as tart then sweet and suddenly elusive as memories of one's own." -American Book Review
 


"A cross between silence and fairy tale, Gaudry's Beckettian narrative sews bright bits to near-faint whispers, slowly swaddling us in quiet and darkness." -Brian Evenson
 
"Amid this stark environment, Gaudry's gorgeous lyric voice guides us through." -Asian American Literature Fans
 
"Molly Gaudry's We Take Me Apart works 'thread into lace.' . . . Especially vivid in this book-length work is the mother's entrance and exit, where the ragged lines swell and turn sonnet-like with love." -Terese Svoboda
