Synopsis: "Eschewing conventional poetic fashion, Laska?s engaging collection of over three decades of writings in the shadow of corporate domination is a sweeping poetic and prosaic, lyrical and anti-lyrical assemblage of thought-provoking epigrams, puns, and philosophical dialogues, together with voices and vignettes of a by-passed America. From the stripped-mined hills and hollows of Appalachia to the banal debris of urban streets, his work unfolds, with respectful understatement, the on-going global desecration of inner and outer life. With patient yet alarmed urgency he brings to the surface an ecological ?counter-tradition? whose contours trace back as far as the ancient Chinese Dao De Jing.

NIGHT & DAY is an iconoclastic 35 year poetic chronicle of America?s OCD. With a smiling grimace the author journeys to the psychological interior of the Homeland, sees through the nation?s repetition compulsion and self-protective historical amnesia, and returns with Zen-like epigrams, satires, dialogues, and a set of healing philosophical ?Maxims of Access.?"

About the Author: P.J. LASKA has been a poet-dissident since the days of the anti-Vietnam War movement. Born and raised in the coal mining region of Appalachia, he lived in Japan as a guest of the U.S. Air Force before returning to complete a Ph.D. in philosophy. For several years he lived in West Virginia's New River Gorge and edited The Unrealist, a left literary magazine. His first book of poems was a National Book Award finalist. He now lives near the Santa Rita Range in the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona.
