Poetry. "FACE is an archae book written both 'after and before.' Recessive narrative events--faces surfacing, twinned with wet surfaces, gone--are released as agents, as saturations of tone and line. 'Inside and out of passage,' Melissa Buzzeo forms a document that is both report and threshold: text and radical architecture: a 'beginning' always 'in transit.' What I love about this work is its refusal to feel, if feeling has become impossible, and, in corollary, its willingness to flood its own terrain, to melt a 'frozen book.' In this way, FACE becomes the 'shape which is desire to see.' It brings towards us the 'hesitant' girl who finds a way to breathe and write again, next to the water which is both lake and paper, the pages floating offshore 'in a dream.' Retrieving these pages, Melissa Buzzeo writes to us: a complex, present, also-writing 'you'"--Bhanu Kapil.
