Novelty Theory is the fiery debut collection of poetry by Caspar Heinemann.
"Caspar Heinemann has written an anthem for alien beloveds everywhere, in the time before rising up and where the “pre-nothings” burn up as soon as you touch them. Reading this book burst adhesions in my outlook, which is what I want (always.) A book without an afterwards or a before, Novelty Theory occupies an intense present that does not console its readers. Can poetry be a form of cultural revenge?" – Bhanu Kapil
