New from DC Books
Press Release For Immediate Release September, 2020
DC Books is proud to announce the publication of Ghost Face, poetry by Greg Santos.
In his third DC Books title, Greg Santos explores what it means to have been a Cambodian infant adopted by a Canadian family. Through a uniquely playful and self-reflective series of poems that pay moving homage to his adoptive parents, and explore the fantasies of a lost family and life in Cambodia, Santos leads the reader through his visceral process of unlearning and relearning who he is and who he might become.
Ghost Face, 83 pp., September 2020, ISBN: 978-1-927599-51-8 (paper) $19.95
Praise for Ghost Face
“Santos’ poems are inventive, smart, and skillfully written and his work does not disappoint. Ghost Face is a beautiful collection that thoughtfully examines family mythologies, identity, and a longstanding belief in ghosts. These are poems I kept returning to, a book I could not put down.”
