Poetry. In VICINITIES, her follow-up to HOW MANY MORE OF THEM ARE YOU? (Avec Books 1999, winner of the Norma Farber First Book Award), Lisa Lubasch illuminates a myriad of landscapes and narratives Jo"Lisa Lubasch's writing is animated by an intense longing, not a longing for wholeness or the self, not even necessarily for coherence, which she knows to be an insidious palliative. No, Lubasch's longing is deeper than any balm the world's surfaces can provide. As for precedents, one might think Holderlin and Artaud, Sappho and Joyce Mansour. But let me be clear: In the age of originality there is no one writing like Lisa Lubasch"--John Yau.

If it all doesn't come together with the searing, anti-vatic force of How Many, this book shows Lubasch working her way out of that book's almost-overwhelming influences (mostly 19th-century French), and toward something new and genuine.
