Handbuzz and Other Voices is the remarkable work of Karyn Lie-Nielsen and the winner of Damfino Press’ first Afternoonified Chapbook Contest. Lie-Nielsen, an ASL translator and the child of Deaf parents, examines the relationships between parents and children, between the hearing and Deaf worlds and asks, “What’s curled beneath my skin / that given light, might ruffle open, / might begin?”
