9781933132693: Little Book of Days

Nona Caspers’ Little Book of Days accretes like a pearl, layer upon layer, around her evocation of experience through language. The perfect beauty of her record of daily living will call out to you, and make you want to write back, to cohabit the form she has so radiantly informed. Seize the day—Nona Caspers has, and transformed it into music. Cooley Windsor Nona Caspers gives us a refreshingly honest and poignant slice of truth in her Book of Days. Observing cars, neighbors, ground squirrels, desire and death, Book of Days is a contemporary take on Montaigne’s famous Essays, so alive that every page feels as if it’s breathing. Maxine Chernoff I like how she falls through the present into prehistory (of this or that specific thing) in a blink. Supported by a rhythm of the claws of love, a hand on the back of your head, the warmth inside of coldness of the daily fading world—an avalanche of quiet risk-taking, this book sings. Eileen Myles
