A riveting new collection by New York poet and curator Vincent Katz

Vincent Katz’s new collection, his first in a decade, presents an aesthetically and emotionally diverse series of poems that attempt to tune in to particular details of the poet’s life, from friends and family to larger geopolitical issues.

Reviews / Endorsements

“Vincent Katz’s poems have a dashing sensuousness, a reality and an immediacy that, combined with their great but lightly worn literary sophistication, give them their exhilarating quality of always seeming concrete and true. They represent a new turn in the poetry of everyday experience, as it was reinvented for our time by such poets as Frank O’Hara and James Schuyler.”—Kenneth Koch

“Mr. Katz writes in bold, seductive lines that express the colors and sounds, the scenes he sees out of windows and the clips, so to speak, as he traverses the symbolism in many of the poems. Rain, water, drinking, clouds all play a role in this work.”—Chris Mansel, Galatea Resurrects
