Kore Press, Paperback, 9781888553260, 92pp.

Publication Date: January 1, 2008

Description
Poetry. "This moving mosaic of the 1904 World's Fair carries the poignancy of an old family album, a presence at once here and gone. Through the poet's pitch-perfect ear and keen eye for the voices, vantages and scraps of the actual, come souvenirs of real lives transfixed in the glare of a triumphant technology's artificial light." Eleanor Wilner
