    Filmmaker/poet Stephanie Barber's NIGHT MOVES
    "This is a sad and powerful book of love poems. Stephanie Barber understands how things are supposed to work and recognizes that they are broken, and NIGHT MOVES is a screenshot for the help desk in the sky. It’s a conceptual ode to Internet philosophy, solidifying the transient nature of online conversation." (Kenneth Goldsmith)
