FROM THE PUBLISHER
A poetry collection like no other, Dustin Luke Nelson's in the office hours of the polar vortex mixes visual elements — like copy-and-paste text, masking tape, Polaroids, haunting images with plastic wrap, typewritten pages, diagrams, musical staff paper, handwritten notes, redacted text, and found text — that create a sense of mystery and intrigue. Whether faxes to and from the office of the Polar Vortex or a tiny flower placed like a music note on staff paper, in the office hours of the polar vortex stirs the kind of queasy intimacy that comes from snooping through someone's desk drawers.

WORD ON THE STREET
“Forget 3-D, CGI, VR, whatever — this book is the best special effect I've seen in years. A wild and surprising ride, almost as frightening as reality!” -Andrew Bujalski, director of Computer Chess, Mutual Appreciation, and Funny Ha Ha

“This is just to say,” significations peek through Dustin Luke Nelson's text. From the verbal juxtapositions of Jean-Paul, through Schwitters’ collage, there's poetry to be found. And it’s in here. Dustin finds it, records it. in the office hours of the polar vortex is readerly, polyvalent. Come as you are. “Nadie puede articular una sílaba que no esté llena ternuras y de temores.” -Bruce Brubaker, pianist

“There's a small shop on the corner of Mail Art and Collage (You should go there if you can find it!) A man works there. No, a man lives there. He eats. Digests his music. Reads the funny papers to. Travels, but only on maps. The man wrote a book. No, the man created a book. No, the man created. Something. Post. Something else. You can dive into it (head first) or maybe read it. The man is Dustin Luke Nelson.” -Marc Neys (aka Swoon), videopoet and short filmmaker

“Like all the best rulebreakers, Dustin Luke Nelson finds a way to balance a sense of daring with a coherence of vision. Literally multilayered in its design, in the office hours of the polar vortex is the kind of book that sticks in your head and makes you want to revisit it, trying to get a handle on it and enjoying the struggle.” -Zeke Jarvis, author of So Anyway… and In A Family Way: Stories
