Tysh is currently working on a film script based on the works of Bataille;
her new book is Continuity Girl. Previous works include Porne,
Secrets of Elegance, and Coat of Arms, the last of which includes
prose poems investigating the semi-ancient arts of heraldry and femininity.
Lyn Hejinian says of Coat of Arms: "The very fact that we call
heraldic symbols devices makes them vulnerable to another realm
-- the poetic -- where prerogatives can be rethought and ultimately dispersed.
Tysh's writing doesnt say we shouldn't be somewhere, but it acts out
a being there in a different (gorgeous and unpunishing) way."
