    Mangold’s The Atom fits right in as a foil to the everyday horror we, global humans, face daily. Sarah Mangold’s small publication is a small siren or horn that beckons us to return to the radical exploration of the self as we move through a historical landscape of trauma and systemic pressure.
    Greg Bem, periodicities

    Mangold’s purpose through unfurling elements of these historical texts is one not only of salvage but reclamation, offered as lyric assemblage of a document to acknowledge so much work that had otherwise been ignored.
