The Empress Has No Closure

By Adeena Karasick

The Empress Has No Closure contains, as a centre-piece, the “Alefbet Transfers,” a meditative, spacial explication of the 22 figures of the Hebrew alphabet.

“All of it hums with intellectual energy, much of it is even funny.”
Books in Canada

“An impressive deconstruction of language and meaning …”
