In this brilliant work that transcends genre—lyric essay, prose poem, philosophical fiction—Fanny Howe pursues her realization that keen metaphysical inquiry is radically essential to everyday life.

About the Author:

FANNY HOWE is the author of more than twenty books of poetry and prose, most recently the novel The Lives of a Spirit/Glasstown: Where Something Got Broken, the book of poetry On the Ground, and a book of essays, The Wedding Dress: Meditations on Word and Life. Professor Emerita of Writing and Literature at the University of California, San Diego, she now lives in Massachusetts.

Review:

“Fanny Howe employs a sometimes fierce, always passionate, spareness in her lifelong parsing of the exchange between matter and spirit.” (Michael Palmer)

“With extraordinary self-scrutiny and complexity―and unmatchable musical poise and beauty―Fanny Howe examines our relationship with ‘other’ worlds, purgatories of various kinds: genetic, historical, theological.” (Rae Armantrout)
