About this title


Unparalleled in the English language, Book of Things, Berk's uniquely compelling lyric trilogy, is an uncommon meditation on the inner life of common things. Mud, bras, slugs and doors - Berk sings them all in this twisting, labyrinthine song of the strange and sensual, by turns playful and surprising, learned and hilarious; beautiful and unsettling in its quirkiness. Berk's tireless journey into the unknown, Book of Things is a testament to the poet's undying appetite for engagement and renewal, his perennial call to awakening.
