In Materialism, her fifth collection, Jorie Graham undertakes a daring book-length meditation on the nature of our restless relationship with matter. With her trade-mark sagacity and vision, Graham unites the complex principles of science and philosophy with a startling array of tangible forms: a man praying in a downtown bakeshop; a crowd at an abortion rally; a survivor of the Stalinist regime alone in her dance studio.
