Poetry. Translation. The first English-language edition of the sensational young Macedonian poet Lidija Dimkovska. Translated into English by Ljubica Arsovska and Peggy Reid and published in a facing-page, bilingual edition as part of UDP's Eastern European Poets Series. "The rock of translation is broken into stones, lined up and moved around to form a solid multitextured dwelling that Lidija Dimkovska then smashes apart with the authority of pure existentialist 21st century hard-earned riotous despair. Long live the stone-throwers! They make poetry much greater than the sum of its parts"--Fanny Howe.
