A wild book of highly autobiographical, essentially religious prose poems.

This is a wild book of highly autobiographical, essentially religious prose poems. Jorie Graham sees Stephen Berg's work as a "strenuous and often dangerous self-witness; an astounding overview of American urban life at the apex and turning point of a major civilization; a probing into memory -- both of the individual and of the race -- at a moment when memory might be the medium that both saves us and finally condemns us; most importantly, it is brilliantly written, brilliantly perceived . . . In reading Berg you will be reading the master of the prose poem."



STEPHEN BERG has written, edited, and translated twenty books of poems, received Guggenheim, NEA, Dietrich Foundation, and Pew fellowships, and is founder of The American Poetry Review.
