Description:

A lush, lyrical debut from a vibrant new poetic voiceA sparrow like a "fumbled punch line" is lost in an airport; a man translating Ovid is transfigured by witnessing a massacre in Jamestown in 1621; a woman smiles seductively as the skin on her back is opened out like a wing; a lizard upon a laptop shimmers with the true life, primitive and binary, of our modern information age. In the sonically rich, formally restless poems of this debut collection, "Song & Error," the thread that unravels all we think we know of the world is plucked loose and drawn from a seals beached corpse. Uniting past and present, history and autobiography, Averill Curdys poems strive to endure within "the crease of transformation" and to speak--sing--of that terrible beauty.
