About this title


A Cloud of Witnesses is a verse-novel that is not in verse and isn't a novel. Here, we fumble through the murk of life in search of sense and of one another. We misplace objects and learn trivia about venomous snakes. We come upon love and we write our family histories in Morse code. Each poem is a chapter born of misremembered plots and of an affinity for the many texts it echoes. This book takes place in aftermath. Imagination and memory intertwine. A vow of love is a confrontation of death where "To love someone you must dream about them dying." This is a book for those who have lived and traveled in books - for those who dwell in Victorian landscapes, those who have written letters by hand, watchers of old films, those who get lost but continue, those who get lost on purpose. It's enough to warm a cold, postmodern heart.
