Cathleen Allyn Conway - American Ingénue
22 Pages // Released February 28th 2021
Cathleen Allyn Conway’s American Ingénue is a pamphlet of found poems cut from Bret Easton Ellis novels and Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High series. Conway transforms her unlikely source material into giddy, irreverent and violent episodes which centre around a ‘damaged party girl’ wandering ‘the wreckage of New York’. American Ingénue is a dazzling and delightful pamphlet which takes the found poem to new, vertiginous heights.
