What People are Saying About This

Adrienne Rich

“Peter Gizzi’s disturbing lyricism is like no other.”

Nathaniel Mackey

“Gizzi treads eggshell air, eggshell earth, traipse never not shadowed by collapse, as if to sound some depth, some corrected tilt or some righted something gone under, the poems an evaporative track left in its wake.”

From the Publisher

"Gizzi treads eggshell air, eggshell earth, traipse never not shadowed by collapse, as if to sound some depth, some corrected tilt or some righted something gone under, the poems an evaporative track left in its wake."—Nathaniel Mackey, author of Nod House

"I like that Peter frequently over bets, this poet gets in trouble and needs the world to get him out of it. It's like this: I saw the frill of light today/walking on the path. It's speechy, meaning (for me) that his writing actually grows ornamental, and then suddenly it turns slight like trash in the street and it's ravishingly strong. Gizzi's strength is a world of big ideas buttressed by fragility and the incidental. And he's often complaining. I'd call it girly. Even post gender. It's strong and it's pretty work." —Eileen Myles
