Product Overview

In this, his major book of poems, poet David Kresh has explored a dangerous world. Using language that is never as simple as it seems, he has mapped the coordinates of a reality that seems to lie slightly beyond our own; at once both magical and familiar, and filled with unexpected moments of stark, heartbreaking beauty. David Kresh served as a reference librarian at the Library of Congress for nearly 40 years. He died in 2006. PRAISE FOR Turn Off or Use Opener ."a poet with original vision and technical sophistication, whose poems brim with surprise and pleasure." Daniel Hoffman Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress 1973-1974 "Kresh.played with language until it was fresh and new, innocent of pretension, and unafraid of retribution. the mundane became the magnificent." Grace Cavalieri Author of What I Would Do For Love
