Poetry. "Norman Fischer's new book is like one of those Baccarat Crystal paperweights, a smooth clear ball of glass containing intricate designs in many brilliant colors. Each design element is individual and isolated, set exactly in place and yet clearly related to the rest, in total silence"--Philip Whalen.
