In SWEET NOTHING, Pritts writes that he keeps "being so / surprised by the happening / that is happening," and the reader will be too. Written in wonder and astonishment, these poems are sweet nothings to the temporary, to the various loves that come and go, to the "already & again" we find ourselves in. The book opens by asking what matters, and throughout the collection it makes the case time and again that a life lived fully, an all-or-nothing approach--even when it blows up--just may be enough. Gina Myers - With Sweet Nothing, Nate Pritts skydives (even more resolutely than he has in the past) into a Whit/man-ic poetics of me and you together (not “me versus you,” not “us versus them,” and certainly not “me so much smarter than everybody else”). These poems go one word, one greeting, one feeling to the next. They were written particularly for all of us. They call us to action—to poems of our own and more importantly to HUMAN BEING yesterday, tomorrow, and right now—however difficult it may be, whatever the cost, with joy at the prospect of making a connection.
