Poetry. Winner of the 2003 Green Rose Prize. "ALASKAPHRENIA is unlike anyother book I have read. As indebted to Melville as to postmodern poetics, its pleasures are terrors, and yet all its terrors are sly and seductive, and necessary.It is, like Alaska, American and not, a place of plenitude and claustrophobia simultaneously. You1ll want to live there because it exhilarates" -- Bin Ramke

"...this Alaska-of-the-mind Hume offers us is a glittery, glamorous place of old words and new syntaxes..." -- Bin Ramke
...Hume's mind wittily and triumphantly takes wing--beyond what it knows and toward 'whatever's uncertain is alive.'" -- Rosmarie Waldrop
