Poetry. "In this superb collection, Mark Irwin balances precision—each line has been carved into being with consummate care—against an enchanting and tonic strangeness, an adventurous commitment to the depths and reaches of metaphor. Few poets remain as faithful to the imagination where formal mastery always serves its vision. To read the poems here is to feel our lives 'luminous and ringing as the space grows larger.' Mark Irwin is a true original, and LARGE WHITE HOUSE SPEAKING is his best book."—Peter Campion
"LARGE WHITE HOUSE SPEAKING is a book of startling marvels and terrible losses explored in poetry so sharp and bright it is song. Mark Irwin faces the world and brings it to these pages in strange imagery, high wire lines, with the precision of a surgeon. He is one of our best poets, and this is his best book yet."——Laura Kasischke
