Editorial Reviews


These letters Ted Worozbyt has issued us are themselves in constant transit, from allegory to idyll to soundscape to dream; from passion to humor to terror to joy; from a painter hawking Balthus forgeries on eBay to dissection sessions in science club to Michael Jackson s Thriller to an effort to empathize with a piñata. You hold in your hands a passport to a truly surprising, delightful, and even devious imagination. Open it this instant! You ll never look back. --Joel Brouwer, author of Centuries

Format: Paperback
The 33rd recipient of the Juniper Prize for poetry, "Letters of Transit" is an anthology of poetry from grant winner Theodore Worozbyt. Focusing on the value of the middle ground, "Letters of Transit" is a unique set of verse touching on the many subjects of our world, both pleasant and unpleasant. The result is a collection spanning matters from the strange to the mundane, to the magnificent. "Letters of Transit" is a must for poetry fans.
