About this title


Poetry. Translated into the Italian by Maria Enrico. Facing page English. Grace Cavalieri's new book of poetry is winner of the Bordighera Poetry Prize sponsored by the Sonia Raiziss-Giop Charitable Foundation. WATER ON THE SUN shows an interesting meeting point of American montage culture and Italian cadence-in-lyric. "Cavalieri has an imaginative, wise, and contemplative voice, with a sense of surprise that awakens our thinking. One wants to dwell over her poems which cover a large range of themes from a surreal and dreamlike existence to family love and world crisis. This is original poetry with a quirky and richly fanciful element, yet always accessible to the heart and mind, even as it sometimes leaves us wondering at the turns taken" -Daniela Gioseffi.
