Description

The poems collected in this volume are taut, lyrical and informed by a powerful and subtle music. Working within the domain of consciously reduced elements, Paul Auster pushes language to its breaking point, locating the sayable within the shifting tumult of the real, and revealing a poetic voice that has been consistently faithful to its visionary impulses.show more
