Description

Breathtaking new poetry by the author of The Cottage Builder's Letter

In this brilliantly evoked new gathering of poems, George Murray creates a strange and menacing world, pulsating with sensory intensity. These poems don't just inquire, they demand answers, and go seeking them through the realms of the past, the present, and the future. Here are stories and images that challenge, threaten, and fascinate by their dreamlike clarity, flickering through kaleidoscopic changes and throwing off resonant statements like sparks. "On either side of awe," as Murray puts it in these innovative new poems, "stand horror and reverence." Events and figures emerge swiftly out of one another in a landscape partly a futuristic or ancient wasteland, partly the generous earth we know. The collection as a whole forms a saga, moving from contemporary damage toward the possibilities - disaster? recovery? - that always exist "in the few moments we have under the sky."
