Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Essays. Literary Criticism. Travel. In this new book of essays, the noted British poet and translator, Christopher Middleton, explores a world in which all things are marvelous--and slightly awry. A dwarf in Trebizond is offended because his donors will not enter the cavern of a restaurant outside of which he waits; each June the head of Balzac appears on the plaster of a wall in a small French village; a heart shaped I Love You balloon moves about the author's home and then suddenly disappears, escaping into the world outside. In these beautifully written, poetic observations, Middleton explores, through odd events and coincidences, the very nature and meaning of our lives. Small format, perfect bound. Green Integer 11.
