From Publishers Weekly
In addition to the darkly fantastic long poem "To Cross This Distance," this marvelous and unassuming book selects from the early and middle work of Bolivian poet and novelist Saenz (1921-1986). Poet-anthologists Johnson (A Nation of Poets) and Gander (Torn Awake), include the original Spanish versions of their long, sinuously precise renderings of the La Paz poet's lines, showing us that "in the dilated and hardened poles of the hymns is the pivotal chord that shocks you into seeing."

"Immanent Visitor is a triumphant procession of that hallucinated angel, Jaime Saenz, carried into English by Kent Johnson and Forrest Gander." - Eliot Weinberger
