Heather Christle


The Second Edition of Heather Christle’s THE TREES THE TREES, the winner of the 2012 Believer Poetry Award, is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase. To celebrate this printing, we’re having a Heather Christle WEEKEND SALE. If you buy the second edition of The Trees The Trees from our website before 11:59pm on Sunday, we will also send you a FREE COPY of her first book from Octopus, The Difficult Farm (3rd printing), or another book of your choice.

This is all just in time too. Heather is on the cover of the September issue of The Believer. Read her interview with Daniel Handler in this issue here.


If you already got your brand new issue of The Believer, you may have noticed something really cool. The Trees The Trees, Heather Christle’s second book from Octopus Books, won the 2nd Annual Believer Poetry Award. I mean, can you Believer it?! Congrats to Heather! Check it out, and read what the Believer said about this “unusually sensitive young woman moving through a fragmented—a dauntingly, majestically, at times kaleidoscopically fragmented—world.”
