Summary

Best and deservedly known for the essay collection UNBOUND: A BOOK OF AIDS, Shurin also penned THE PARADISE OF FORMS: SELECTED POEMS, a Publishers Weekly Best Book last year. A book of thresholds, middles, unfinished episodes, Shurin's latest presents a set of rigorous and exacting deliriums. First- and third-person narrators are interspliced and then abandoned to purely visceral description of muscles, contours, even applause. The diction switches from archaic to pulpy noir to adult contemporary. Yet these 48 prose poems have an immediacy that holds them together perfectly.... Readers of Jorie Graham, Michael Palmer and other edgy, glossy elegists will find Shurin's modes familiar but his voice unique - Publishers Weekly.
