"Olzmann’s skilled play, terrific ear, and immense heart makeMezzaninesa must-read."—Pat RosalThere is no place Matthew Olzmann doesn’t visit in his poignant debut. From underwater to outer space,Mezzaninesis a contained universe, constantly shifting through multiple perceptions of the surreal and the real. A lyrical conversation with mortality, Olzmann explores identity, faith, and our sense of place, with an acute awareness of our minute existence.From "NASA Video Transmission Picked Up By Baby Monitor":How many shadows are there left to name?Logophobia is the fear of words. Keraunothnetophobiais the fear of falling man-made satellites.Imagine this last one:you walk outside and look to heavenexpecting a sky lab plunging down on you—wireseverywhere, bolts loosening, metal body in flames.Instead, you see only blue, endless blue,the color of a baby’s new blanket, cloaking everything.Matthew Olzmannis a graduate of the MFA program for writers at Warren Wilson College. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming inKenyon Review,New England Review,Inch,Gulf Coast,Rattle, and elsewhere. He’s received fellowships from Kundiman and the Kresge Arts Foundation.
