This newest collection of poems from Tomaž Šalamun is exuberant, ambitious, and full of surprises. Here the devil is encountered and understood- I see the devil's head, people, I see his whole body . . . he longs for innocence, as we do. Here the poet juggles many tones, languages, and countries. Desire is evoked as both frustrating and exhilarating- I'm watered by longing, knocking my head into the wall, on the ground, or I burn, burn, folded up on the couch. And memory comes back to remind us of the laws and experiences of childhood- Once again you are let loose in the sea only after five o'clock in the afternoon to take a dose of sunlight like the ticking of the clock. At once daring and clear-voiced, The Book for My Brother is an extraordinary achievement.

Salamun is undoubtedly the most outstanding among the younger Slovene poets. What sets him apart from many other talented contemporaries is his iconoclastic attitude, rare in his nation but very much like that of younger poets elsewhere. In his numerous collections since 1966, he is unconventional, daring, innovative, at times irreverent, but always urging a reevaluation of established values. His poetic world is unlike any other in Slovene letters, and he has never wavered from an intent to be different. At the same time, he has artistic power that supports his claim for originality. He has been widely translated.
