Nikki Reimer Interviewed in Prairie books Now

Check out this interview with Nikki Reimer in Prairie books Now about her new poetry collection, No Town Called We.

From the interview:

“Reimer worked on these poems from 2018 to 2022 and says that she was constantly grasping after the communal “we.”

“The city is always and increasingly a site of hostility for anyone on any vector of marginalization,” says Reimer. “It’s increasingly a site of hostility for all but the wealthy. It’s hostile to disability. I was theorizing, from the subjective viewpoint of my chronically ill body, that the city, too, is chronically ill. And I was struggling, bodily and mentally, within that space.”
