Poetry that explores how accidental voyeurism can force reconsideration and reconciliation White.out: n. a surface condition ... in which no object casts a shadow, the horizon cannot be seen, and only dark objects are discernible ... Whiteout: when the heavy weather of daily life establishes the measure of the measureless; when the predatory nature of the accidental conjures cowboys and the comatose; when the sickly sweet pop of life underfoot contrasts the televised image, shrinking to a pinprick. Whiteout: calques and towers, twin polar storms, falling, burning. Whiteout: ''a book of white nothing.''
George Murray's sixth collection has been a decade in the making. At once taut, tender and terrifying, haunted and haunting, Whiteout shatters convention in the collision of order and rage, formlessness and hard - won serenity.
