A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. This is a Review Copy with the publisher's press release enclosed. In the 16 long poems that comprise this collection, the lyricism of her earlier volumes is replaced by relentless eyewitness accounts: haunting, cinematic narratives of the rich and famous that even the tabloids couldn't dream up. The vision and the violence carry over into the lives of unnamed, down-and-out characters. Male and female characters are equally pitiful, yet Ai's strength rests in her ability to avoid wallowing in sympathy for them. Bookseller Inventory # 25386
