Without Utterance, a crushingly intimate literary memoir told from the inside of losing language, self, and world.
Created by

Ruth Resch

41 backers pledged $2,735 to help bring this project to life.


Words fail me!

These last months have been filled with folly, blows, and excellence. The magic of Kickstarter is that you backers created a field of energy around me that has held me into the future. The future of this book, Without Utterance -- that has seemed so far in the vague future -- is NOW!

I have a Publisher: Starseed Publications -- a part of Lorian Press --old and dear friends.  What could be better!

The future is now -- it will be published in the Fall -- not some other year, THIS one! This is thrilling beyond imagination.  Thank you Starseed, Thank you Lorian, and most of all Thank you Kickstarters who helped me hold the vision!

Some of you will be getting copies as part of your backer pledge. For the rest of you, it will be up on --the  bookstore in the near future if you want to pre-order.

Watch the video -- I tell a little more of the dreadful wonderful odyssey.....
