Table of Contents

"Vijay Seshadri's poems are wittily alive to everything, continually quick and surprising, expertly turned"
"Vijay Seshadri tracks 'the signature stinks and blood trails' of our species--its squalor and splendor, seen here with both charity and rage--exhilaratingly in this book
The poems have both electric energy and gravitas
Short and long poems (which is rare) equally have authority
The distinction with which this new voice deciphers the 'Rosetta stone' of our 'defective mythologies' is unmistakable, and absorbing."

"These are poems full of musical light and dark wit
Their cadences are wonderfully poised between regret and discovery
Vijay Seshadri is a lyric poet who can mix elegy and affirmation within a few stanzas of one another
He makes the landscape and the cityscape into one challenging and heartbreaking place where the old transformations of language can still happen"
