Description

A dark, cracked parable in the tradition of Millhauser by way of Kafka, Sebald, and, perhaps, St. John Climacus. Schweizer’s lyric exploration of capitalism, its artifacts and (especially) its denizens, casts an eerie spell. There is nothing else quite like this in contemporary American poetry. G.C. Waldrep -- back cover of book
