by Nicole Oquendo

Nicole Oquendo is a multi-modal author, whose work straddles multiple genres while dodging easy classification as any one thing. Telomeres is part poetic interpretation, part memoir-in-verse, part familial transcription of PTSD, addiction, and the family heirloom that is trauma. Telomeres is unlike anything you’ve ever read before, a hybrid work brimming with harrowing, haunting complexity and raw humanness that will leave its mark etched upon readers.
