"So many paths shape The Waker's Corridor
: walkways through childhood and grief, through illusion and reality, walkways through the nuanced layers of consciousness. Drawing from sources as diverse as the York Cycle of Mystery Plays
and twentieth-century German design, Jonathan Thirkield has crafted a luminous book, one that marks the emergence of a major new voice in American poetry." --Linda Bierds
