Jill Christman from Essay Daily on Kathy Winograd’s lyric essay “Bathing”:

There’s a new collection of page-turning lyric essays hitting the shelves this month. Phantom Canyon: Essays of Reclamation, by Kathryn Winograd, is already enjoying a “soft release” from Conundrum Press at this posting, and you should be able to find it anywhere by February. You know how you remember where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing when you listened to such-and-such a song, maybe for the first time? Like Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” when no doubt you should not have been there, and certainly not with that crowd, under those conditions, in a smoky basement apartment with black lights on Oglethorpe Avenue in Savannah? Right. You do.This is how it is for me with the first essay I ever heard from what has become Phantom Canyon“Bathing.” I remember sitting at a long table in a big room with tall windows at Ashland University four summers ago when my poet colleague, Kathy Winograd, busted out with this essay. I remember the quality of the light—it was evening, and the room’s ambience was no good, too bright for what was happening. Her fingers wrapped around both sides of the paper. I remember sharing a body when this room full of writers, the whole room, took a big breath and held it.
