"In twenty-nine separate but ingenious ways, these stories seek permanent residence within a reader. They strive to become an emotional or intellectual cargo that might accompany us wherever, or however, we go. . . . If we are made by what we read, if language truly builds people into what they are, how they think, the depth with which they feel, then these stories are, to me, premium material for that construction project. You could build a civilization with them." --Ben Marcus, from the Introduction Award-winning author of Notable American Women""Ben Marcus brings us this engaging and co... View more info

Edition: 2

Seller ID: 46878

Condition: Used - Good


Poetry. The kinetic energy of John Rybicki's poems is his unmistakable signature.His poem "Traveling at High Speeds" opens with the lines, "Some night my body takes the shape of this city." That urban shape is the shape of John Rybicki's poetry as well. The city in question is, of course, Detroit, but whether Detroit itself is the subject, as it is in many of his poems, or not, the cadence of its streets informs the slashing attack of Rybicki's vivid language.
