Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

These poems are wildly imploding narratives held together by hinged lines: in one, a world revolves around a mystical bicycle repairman, in another, everyone lives in a minaret. In political allegory and painterly landscape, philosophic story and dramatic monologue, they describe a moment when something marvelous and unforeseen alters the course of a single day, a year, or an entire life. Comic, elegaic, and always formally intricate, this collection takes a second and third look at bathtubs, glaciers, and 'want, that glass-bottomed boat.'


Review:

"Harvey's art of mutable surfaces, often anchored in an acute visual sensitivity, is most compelling when she allows her ornamental impulse a greater range of shape and pacings, as in "Ceiling Unlimited Series": 'it's unnecessary, but how was I to know/that a lover would be just another blank sky?/In a fever I felt something once, so here I am/still collecting glimpses.'"

Karen Volkman, Voice Literary Supplement, May 2001

Review:

"[An] intensely visual debut collection of poems....Mournfully comic and syntactically inventive...."

New Yorker, 07/09/2001
