More Info:

The cover of this elegant collection is an impressive full-color photo, Ocean, by Dan Torop. A short fuse on a long afternoon/ twinges for concentrate/ as silent upholstery after illusion (Personal Life). We have waited a long time for a new collection of poems by Alan Bernheimer. Now, holding this utterly wonderful book in my hands, I can't help but think about that long time, the years of living. The vivacity of Bernheimer's earliest work -- his capacity for setting spirals of verbal witticism into motion and for executing wry dances of intelligence across contemporary landscape -- is still dazzling.... This only looks like a small book; in it, you will read major work. -- Lyn Hejinian.
