Caitlin R. Kiernan. The Drowning Girl. A taste of what's to come.

Thanks to the Internet, back in 2002 I started following author Caitlin R. Kiernan. I've followed and collected her work over the past 10 years, gotten to meet her in person, and been invested in her art's progression and her career. She's the only author whose entire full-length novel (2004's Murder of Angels) I've read out loud. Her most recent novel, 2009's The Red Tree, is one hell of a work; I loved it and even re-read it almost immediately after first reading it, to pick up on more detail.

And while she's done at least decently in her career, Kiernan (here on LJ as greygirlbeast) wanted to do something bolder to do better, especially with the upcoming March 2012 release of her book The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, which she believes might be the best novel she's written.

And now there's a teaser. Literally: a 30-second teaser trailer for the book, filmed last year (video camera work by briansiano with photography by kylecassidy) in an attempt to convey visually Kiernan's poetic writing. More to come, meaning longer trailers, followed by the book itself come March 2012. Which I'm already deeply eager to read.

Go to the front page of Caitlin R. Kiernan's web site to see what I'm talking about.
