Rick WhitakerAugust Kleinzahler's magical new memoir, Cutty, One Rock, is a deeply moving, unpretentious 155-page masterpiece. Readers of Kleinzahler's poems (he has published 10 volumes of them, most recently The Strange Hours Travelers Keep) will be familiar with some of his themes and objects, his family, his travels, his heterosexual adventures, his tragic gay brother who died long ago (aged 27); but if you missed these prose pieces when they were first published in the London Review of Books and elsewhere, this collection, which constitutes a brief autobiography, will come as a rich surprise. Only a mature poet could have written as lyrical and limpid a book as this.
