Jenna Putnam’s Hold Still is a collection of poetry and prose exploring sexuality, love, and loss. It is a memoir of a female artist’s relationships with friends, lovers, and muses. With a backdrop set in New York City and Los Angeles, two places the author and photographer spent most of her twenties, Hold Still’s coming-of-age sensitivity is both raw and vulnerable. Influenced by writers like Patti Smith, John Ashbery, and Rimbaud, Putnam’s work is unique an nostalgic, reflecting on fleeting relationships in a modern world.
