The “exquisite and haunting” (Booklist) collection of poems built around the language and mystique of American captivity narratives in which Sheck enters the vivid life we live inside our own minds and selves, and takes us into the mysterious underside of consciousness and selfhood.
“Sheck [is] one of the most accomplished lyric poets writing in America today.” —Boston Review
“These lyrics bring fresh insight out of numbness and joy out of sorrow.” —The New Leader
