Description

UWA Publishing warmly invites you to the launch of Hush: A Fugue by Dominique Hecq.

Hush will be launched by poet and scholar Justin Clemens.

Please RSVP by Friday 21 July.

(And for those partial to an open fire, you won't be disappointed...)


'Dominique Hecq writes through dulled topographies of mourning, avowing death is a “singular fear of finitude against a background of black light”. Autobiographical, and sharply particular, Hush takes readers into an abyss where “grief is a caesura” and loss means “being hostage to a ghost”. But this book is not only a poignant elegy to “losing your mother tongue and cracking your own voice”; Hush is also an incandescent lament from an “un / harmed” speaker locating the possibilities and lexicons of dénouement. Silencing the undertones of a surpassing grief, Hecq’s quest is finally epic and heroic.'
