Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Selected by Adrienne Rich for the APR/Honickman First Book Prize, Pavlic's debut offers in return the musical cadences and lulls of experience: a lover's touch "gone to silence at the bottom/ of the pool. Rhythms, strings of the nidi/ travel thru bone// & in flesh waves without a goose/ ripple in my skin." Pavlic, who teaches in the English Department at Union College, spins endless synaesthesic trills, a seeming poetic signature (a "paraph" is a script flourish): "orange glow from inside the log, flakes waft like trout gills/ in a blue stream of smoke & I can't tell an ash limb/ from wood that breathes."

Format: Paperback
jazz poets are a dime a dozen, so when I picked up this slim volume of poetry I had dim hopes. WOw, what a surprise; what verse and verve. Ed Pavlic's work is without a doubt the most profound, original, spirited and unpredictable in the poetry world today. Far beyond jazz, he lifts the word into that rare sphere where music and verse meet. Pass the word; this is a poet to watch and read and tell your friends about.
