To make a landscape out of anti landscape is a true feat, and this book succeeds Through texture, history, and action the book paints a portrait of place where the horizon has fuzzy edges Some of my favorite moments Sea smoke, my father Brash churned with tide I call that bird an eyelash wish with a girl s face hiding just behind his concentration the white will kill me if I blink too fast when the sky bleeds into the earthso that the whole body becomes a palindrome My mistake listening to the s [...]
