Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Space Walk blasts off into realms of experience that show the imaginations limitless capacity to be both brutal and uplifting. While many of the poems in this daring collection confront head-on our current American realities of empire, state violence, the endless “crisis chatter” of talking heads, and the eerie, weightless feeling of catastrophe, they are tethered to the gravitational pull of love and hope.

In Sleighs poems, rocket engines and pancake houses, space stations and moms kitchen, terrorist organizations and Sundays in a museum are all part of loves galactic amplitude. Hailing Tom Sleighs work, the Los Angeles Times has written that he “stakes a claim on the planet of the imagination.” In The New Yorkers words, he “asserts the importance of poetry itself,” showing us, in Space Walk, its restorative, recuperative powers.
