Prolific musician and poet Sadie Dupuis announces her second book, Cry Perfume. Though she relocated to Philadelphia in 2016, Dupuis had never been there for more than two consecutive weeks, thanks to near-permanent touring—until 2020 forced a hiatus from travel. Over the course of that year and the next at home, Dupuis compiled and edited four years’ worth of poems she’d written on the road. The result is Cry Perfume: a stunning new collection of poetry about beauty, mourning and music. Cry Perfume, which will be out on October 4 via Black Ocean, is the follow-up to her 2018 debut poetry collection, Mouthguard, which earned universal praise.
