"The metaphysics of the pause, the transition, the image: James Pollock has the Tranströmer instinct, but he plays the music in his very own key. These are haunting, deeply digested, nearly always surprising poems"—Sven Birkerts

As you read the poems in this book of highly readable, literary poems, you soon realize that the book as a whole is a story, it takes you on a journey, draws you in deeper, like a novel. The experience of reading it is like the best conversation you ever had with another intelligence, another sensibility. Stunning, crystal clear lines and images that will linger in your mind long afer you close the book. All of this and a mastery of form that is so subtle, you hardly notice it, you only feel its effects.
The kind of poetry that can bring people back to reading poetry. Poeetry that will last. Be one of the first to discover Sailing to Babylon.
