Description:

Internationally recognized as one of the most innovative writers in America today, Leslie Scalapino's award-winning work persistently challenges the boundaries of its many forms-poetry, prose, plays, and more. This outstanding volume includes work from sequential and serial poems written over thirty-two years. The poems demonstrate ideas and inventions in writing, and how one such writing-invention leads to the next. Three series are selected from the long poemway,about which Philip Whalen said "She makes everything take place in real time, in the light and air and night where all of us live, everything happening at once." Recent poems, such as those from "DeLay Rose" appear to leave the page itself as a singe infinite line in which actions of individuals and the occurrence of the outside world are synonymous, mysterious, and simultaneous.It's go in horizontalis a dazzling entryway into the oeuvre of one of our most daring and powerful writers.
