About the book:

Poetry. "Paul Guest's poems are infused with tenderness toward the world despite its harsh indifference toward us. Literally and metaphorically, these are poems scratched out with a stick held between the teeth. And they manage to fashion, from life's rough lot, testaments of good faith to the flesh, the world, the word, and love in all its various garments"-Lucia Perillo. "Filled with irony, fantastic leaps of imagination and a poetic maturity most poets don't achieve for several books, this incredible debut works dialectically to resurrect our world among all its broken bodies. Here is a voice smart enough and sentient enough to know that the pain and the love of that world are two sides of the proverbial coin-a poet who, like Stevens' eagle, clearly sees the infinite alps of our emotions as a single nest"-Richard Jackson.
