Two books in one, this first full-length English translation of work by contemporary Sicilian poet Attanasio bears the stamp of her studies in German Expressionist and French Surrealist poetry. The energy is fierce and inexhaustible and the run-on spill of language bright and perfectly honed, with telling juxtaposition. What it all yields: a tightly coiled sexuality and the will to live.—BH
