“There is no mistaking Yau's exceptional talent (or Nozkowkis') in this unusual and beautiful book.”—Sima Rabinowitz, Dragonfire

Acclaimed poet and art critic John Yau, author of fourteen books of poetry, teams up with esteemed painter Thomas Nozkowski to create the exquisite Ing Grish, the second in the Saturnalia Books Poet/Artist collaboration series

Yau’s comic and cutting poetry collides with the work of Nozkowski, whom the New Yorker has termed “the Chardin of contemporary abstraction.” The end result is a dazzling and vibrant concoction of visual and written imagery. All the poems in Ing Grish are new, as are Nozkowski’s paintings and illustrations, which he created expressly for this collection.

Ing Grish was named “Book of the Year” by Small Press Traffic in San Francisco.
