Synopses & Reviews
In St phane Bouquet's The Next Loves French poetic tradition meets the casual everyday of the the New York School poets offering a distinctly unique take on themes of homosexuality, desire, loneliness, and love. It interrogates the structures of relationships--and the possibility of human relations generally--in an era of global inequality and fundamental precarity, carving out delicate spaces for the passages from I to you and even to the collective we.
