Cornerstone Press is proud to present our Fall 2016 offering, Meditations of a Beast, by Kristine Ong Muslim. A prolific poet and short story writer, Ms. Muslim breathes new life into the poetry cycle with her striking counter-balance of styles, perspectives, and expressions. Her voice, strong and grounded in humanity, gives each poem energy and wit, insight and pathos, terror and forgiveness. To read her work is to read the mind at work, as Ms. Muslim challenges staid stereotypes, forces out old ghosts, and resurrects new possibilities. 

Meditations of a Beast was officially released on 9 December 2016. Order your copy today by visiting our purchasing page. For questions regarding online sales and future events, please contact the press at:
