Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Against Distance nature is both a repreive and a danger. Various landscapes pepper the collection — oceans, inlets, rivers, foothills, deserts — and pressure human relationships. The book's title poem finds a young boy on an inner tube in a rip tide — "waving an arm that couldn't be seen".

Synopsis:
