"In Babel's Moon, Brandon Som demonstrates a stunning musical perceptiveness on a global scale. These poems are rooted in the senses, with a rare ability to unsettle and awaken the reader. I trust in his weird and delightful imaginings of the moon, cactus, kites, and the origins of tea. And he carries this responsibility well '. . . because the opaque, in its refusing / of the light, affords us reflection.' What a sparkling debut!" -- Aimee Nezhukumatathil
"The marvelous texture and phrasing of Brandon Som's poems, tempered by sincerity, travel far into the landscape of memory: 'Crickets were out, too, and, as if they sightread / stars, settled in to leg-kick song.' One might readily say of his capacious and moving Babel's Moon what this poet says of the horizon: 'My fingers felt as if thousands / Of miles were between them.'" -- Mark Irwin --Advance Praise
