Reviews / Endorsements

Willis Barnstone has a problem: he's too good. Dazzlingly gifted as a writer ... everything he writes, from his invaluable The Other Bible, which no writer should be without, through his brilliant translations and beautiful poems, up to this new collection, is a breathtaking achievement. Buy this book.—Carolyn Kizer

WILLIS BARNSTONE was born in Lewiston, Maine, and educated at Bowdoin, Columbia, and Yale. He taught in Greece at the end of the civil war (1949-51), in Buenos Aires during the Dirty War, and during the Cultural Revolution went to China, where he was later a Fulbright Professor of American Literature at Beijing Foreign Studies University (1984-1985). His publications include The Other Bible, a memoir biography With Borges on an Ordinary Evening in Buenos Aires, and To Touch the Sky. A Guggenheim Fellow and Pulitzer Prize finalist in poetry, Barnstone is Distinguished Professor at Indiana University.
