Tomorrow, We Will Live Here. [Salt Modern Poets]

Van Winkle, Ryan

Salt Publishing, 2010
in stockin voorraad Paperback: EUR 12,80 
This is a terse, tough debut by an award-winning American poet with punch in the language. What you find here is the grist of life - death, love, sex, departure - honed by a voice obsessed with the gravity, fear and the humour of being human. Van Winkle's understated, plain spoken, narrators are as diverse as the America they live in - the lonely night nurse, the conflicted son of a preacher, and the cross-country runner - are all ill at ease in the world. Through road kill, September 11th, and death row they address their own bitter faults with noir-like melancholy, seeking redemption and absolution.
