Synopsis

Poetry. "Geoffrey Dyer's impressive first book is filled with beautiful contradictions, its lines turning over into lush, angelic underworlds...Be careful when you read this book. It's like being twice as awake"--Elizabeth Willis. "Welcome to the 'valley of the near yonder hell, an Out West sort of place,' where you will find 'Golgotha embellished in cement' and the 'mascara of Andromeda.' When you are here, 'pay attention to the words collaborating inside [y]our skull.' Geoffrey Dyer certainly does"--John Yau. "His tanks grow roses..."--Anselm Berrigan.
