Debut poetry by Brian Russell, winner of the Bakeless Poetry PrizeThe year of what nowAre we the pure products   and whatDoes that even mean   pure   isn’t itObvious   we are each our own cultureAlive with the virus that’s waitingTo unmake us.                        —from “The Year of What Now”“The Year of What Nowis not a book of poems about cancer. It’s not a book that wears its heart on its sleeve. It doesn’t parade the autobiographical in your face, though the conventions seem at first to be autobiography. It’s not a cryin extremis,de profundis, etc. It’s more casual, more canny, more casually well-made, more philosophically oriented . . . This book seems to me to represent a way forward for other young poets in its wide engagement with the world, in its unabashed embrace of the personal, and its equally galvanizing skepticism about the limits of subjective speech. At its deepest level, it embodies the desire to establish true sequences of pain from the cellular level to the most abstract operations of culture, technology, and possible worlds of the spirit.” —Tom Sleigh, Bakeless Prize judge, from the introduction
