Press Kit Download Page For Buried [A Place]


A haunting descent narrative reimagining/challenging Dante’s Inferno and the masculine version of “descent”, Buried [A Place] is one woman’s journey through the shadows of trauma, relationship and story. What to do when one is lost? Who do we follow? When does a teacher, a mentor, a brother, a father, no matter how seemingly beloved, become something else? “Which are you?”, the narrator asks over and over – even of herself. This is nothing less than one woman’s revelation of the self, of the feminine, buried underneath the crushing weight of cultural and personal history. Buried [A Place] reclaims not just voice, but the body, not just knowledge, but raw knowing.

Never have I seen the female form so unearthed—not just the body—but the sound of its voice, the shape of its language.

Amy Irvine, award-winning author of Trespass: Living at the Edge of the Promised Land and Desert Cabal

To dwell in Sue Scavo’s imagination is to suspend time and what we have come to know—so that we may re-know it.

Kerrin McCadden, award-winning poet of American Wake and Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes
