BORSUK, Amaranth. Handiwork. New Hampshire / New York / Massachusetts: Slope Editions, 2012. First Edition. 216x140mm. Trade Paperback. New. 79pp. Winner of the 2011 Slope Editions Book Prize.

Handiwork is in itself a work of craftsmanship, piecing together fragments while at the same time producing anew. Borsuk summons the tradition of Hebrew gematria to investigate and engage with language's slipperiness, and, as she explains, to provide "a sense of hope within constraint: the fruitful possibility of language." It also wrestles with and probes into "where family history becomes personal mythology, and where gaps open up that ask to be filled." The reader explores, in Handiwork, both the creative and destructive urges imminent in expression, as "what wounds is easily unwound."
