For the duration of the Covid-19 Pandemic, all my books here at Gumroad are Pay-What-You-Want. There is a suggested price given, which is the same as my usual retail price, but you can pay whatever you want or are able to.
We need to pull together, and the small thing I can do is offer entertainment for those stuck in self-isolation. Lots of us are struggling to make ends meet with the loss of work. If you are able to pay, thank you so much for supporting the arts. If you are not, you can still read all my books for free, and you're still supporting the arts when you talk about said books with your friends. <3
"Katje van Loon is a runaway who not only clearly sees what she’s fleeing, she definitely knows what she’s seeking: a place where the world makes better sense and writing really can make, enrich, and save your life. Her instruments are ones “of soul and sass,” and her good work will thoroughly kick that part of your anatomy that rhymes with the latter as she wrings your brain with necessary thought. Don’t be glancing around as you read; she’s speaking to you."
-Eric Shaffer, author of Living at the Monastery, Working in the Kitchen
"Katje van Loon is the clear, forthright voice of a generation as hooked on poetry as any in history. By turns yearning, outraged, wistful, and funny, these poems won’t let us get away with forgetting the past or denying the present. Her muscular command of language demonstrates what it means to be a young word-wrighter today. Poetry’s future rests in good hands."
-Kaimana Wolff, Cured of Kings and the witless poisoner
