Notebook of Last Things (Paperback)
On our shelves now
Poetry. Organized around three sequences of numbered tercets, NOTEBOOK OF LAST THINGS maps a city undergoing dynamic, transformative change along with the sense of living that change--its rhythms and patterns, its peculiar commitments, its urgencies and pleasures as well as its inequalities, tensions, and fateful "unsaids." Possessed by the drama of the ephemerality of experience, tuned into the drift of the present, NOTEBOOK OF LAST THINGS draws on the lyric to meditate on the present, and the powers, acknowledged and unacknowledged, that make it up.
