Fire Break by George Albon (Nightboat Books, paperback)
Publication Date: September 10, 2013
Publisher Marketing: A brilliant new poetic sequence from a leading innovative American poet. FIRE BREAK is a suite of untitled lyric poems which move through a succession of present moments, bringing through the weave both hard-edged engagement and uncommon harmonics. In the mix can be heard messages of desire, physicality, global imbalances, and ultimately, creation.
"George Albon's admirable body of work functions like a musical backbone, bracing us for and facing us into the world."—Forrest Gander
