The Coach House (HQ of Coach House Books and Coach House Printing) has a charmingly ramshackle coffee room. And for over 45 years, that room has served as a meeting space for writers, publishers, artists, readers, musicians and more. Throughout 2014, we've been using this space to host our Kaffeeklatsch series.

The new collection from Griffin- and Latner-winning Ken Babstock, On Malice is a bad mist, a digitized weather front trying to watch the surveillance from inside it, and to sit vigil at our convalescence as an alien witness.
