Olga Broumas and T Begley include new collaborations in this reprint of a long out-of-print erotic and phosphorescent collaborative work

Nightboat Books is proud to bring back this long out-of-print ecstatic, collaborative performative work. Written and arranged in an experimental mode akin to music or choreography, these fragmented lyrics create space and resonance honoring the physical splendor of both the body and the poem. This new edition includes several new poetic sequences and an extended essay.



OLGA BROUMAS is a poet, translator, and professor at Brandeis University. Her books include Beginning with O, a Yale Younger poets selection; Rave: Poems 1975–1998; Perpetua; and two translations of Odysseas Elytis. T BEGLEY is a poet and translator living in Arizona. KAZIM ALI is a poet, essayist, novelist, and translator.
