Description

The third annual edition of Sarabande's Quarternote Chapbook Series.

-Identifying with the season of autumn, the dark of it, the barren, irreversible future of it, and the beauty of it, which is not seen as redemptive, the voice of Louise Gluck is starker, more direct, more emotionally charged than it has ever been. October is a masterpiece.---Mark Strand
