Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Ashberry won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. Ashberry reaffirms the poetic powers that have made him such an outstanding figure in contemporary literature. This new book continues his astonishing explorations of places where no one has ever been.

Review:

"Ashbery's own kind of recklessness takes the form of an austere refusal to honor any of the claims of sentiment, beauty and good conscience that poetry is supposed to make." New York Times
