Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New poetry by Jim Moore, who “elevates economy of phrase to an art” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

             No, I dont know

the way to get there.

            Two empty suitcases sit in the corner,

if thats any kind of clue.

                               —from “Almost Sixty”

Brief, jagged, haiku-like, Jim Moores poems in Invisible Strings observe time moving past us moment by moment. In that accrual, line by line, is the anxiety and acceptance of aging, the mounting losses of friends to death or divorce, the accounting of frequent flyer miles and cups of coffee, and the poets own process of writing. It is a world of both diminishment and triumphs. Moore has assembled his most emotionally direct and lyrically spare collection, one that amounts to his book of days, seasons, and stark realizations.

About the Author

JIM MOORE is the author of six previous books of poetry, including Lightning at Dinner. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Spoleto, Italy.
