Announcement: Los Angeles Native Wendy C. Ortiz’s New Book

CCM is pleased to announce BRUJA by Wendy C. Ortiz, the author of the critically acclaimed EXCAVATION: A MEMOIR and HOLLYWOOD NOTEBOOK. With Bruja, Ortiz continues to upend and reinvent the memoir in inventive and deeply emotional ways to better fit the terms and trajectory of her exploration. Behold the “dreamoir”–the details from the most malleable and revelatory portions of one’s dreams, catalogued in bold detail. Ortiz has created a new literary form, a parallel plane where the cast of characters are the people that occupied one’s waking life; Bruja is a narrative that’s equal parts delicate and bold, a literary adventure through the boundaries of memoir, where the self is viewed from a position anchored into the deepest recesses of the mind. The end result is perhaps one of the most candid expressions of personal history, the subconscious bared in full, revealing the part of oneself that is often the most difficult to see. BRUJA will be released as part of the Quarter 4 2016 CCM Catalogue. We can’t wait to show you more. We’re coping.From: Civil Coping Mechanisms blog
