Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of a "Discovery"/The Nation Award

Winner of the 1999 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry

Some Ether is one of the more remarkable debut collections of poetry to appear in America in recent memory. As Mark Doty has noted, "these poems are more than testimony; in lyrics of ringing clarity and strange precision, Flynn conjures a will to survive, the buoyant motion toward love which is sometimes all that saves us. Some Ether resonates in the imagination long after the final poem; this is a startling, moving debut."

Synopsis:

Even before publication, Nick Flynn's collection has made its mark: as winner of The Nation/Discovery Award and the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry. Flynn honors two impulses: to speak the unspeakable and to admit that there is something beyond being spoken. As the PEN judges note: "At once reckless and demure, outrageous and delicate, Some Ether promises nothing: it is a harrowing, beautiful book".
