Overview


Lodgings is the first representative selection of Sosnowski's work available in English. Spanning his entire career, this is a book whose approach to language, literature, and the representation of experience is simultaneously resonant and strange—a cocktail party where lowlifes and sophisticates hobnob with French theorists and British glam rockers, unsettling us with the hard accuracy of their pronouncements.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Sosnowski’s range is striking. Perhaps due to the barreling nature of his lines, prose seems to accommodate him especially well. But at the same time, prose also tends to diffuse the heart of his project, his breathlessness and tumbling, in favor of a more contained and didactic feel."–E.C. Belli, Words Without Borders

"The poems exude an exuberant air of playful language" –J. Kates, World Books Review
