Overview

At the heart of this vivid collection, Donna Masini confronts the unbearable loss of a beloved sister. Looking for solace-- or escape--in the quiet of an afternoon cinema, she investigates the ways in which movies shape our imaginations and teach us how to mold our own experiences. In poems that are by turns intimate and wild, provocative and tender, Masini explores personal loss, global violence, and the consolations of art. She brings her wit and grief, fury, and propulsive energy to bear on the preoccupations of our daily lives, both those that are center stage and those that creep along the edges of our screens.

FROM "THE LIGHTS GO DOWN AT THE ANGELIKA"

Now it's quiet, still

this burden of being watcher and screen

and what floats across it-- light pouring out

its time and necklines and train wrecks.
