About the Book

Pointing the way to what Montaigne called unlearning how to be a slave, Human Directional teaches us how to be free. With the deadly precision of the fey, it reveals the heartbreak and absurdity of our world by exploring—and often exploding—its most sacred memes. Diane Raptosh writes for lovers of poetry, books, words, mountains, and people who are worried about the world.

Diane Raptosh's American Amnesiac (Etruscan Press) was longlisted for the 2013 National Book Award and the 2014 Housatonic Book Award for Poetry. Recipient of three fellowships in literature from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, Raptosh was Boise's Poet Laureate (2013) and serves as Idaho's Writer-in-Residence (2013–2016).

About the Book

Following her big hit, American Amnesiac, Raptosh's Human Directional zigzags across consciousness, searing through old patterns of thought and offering.
