"Could it be that Wallace Stevens and Gertrude Stein met in Elysium and had a son named Geoffrey Nutter?"-John Yau
Bearing the visionary inheritance of ancient Chinese poets and early twentieth-century painters, Geoffrey Nutter casts a penetrating light into the colorfully shifting landscape of modern existence. Christopher Sunset reinvigorates the architecture of society's captive and captivating imaginations.
Geoffrey Nutter is the author of Water's Leaves & Other Poems (Verse Press) and A Summer Evening (Center for Literary Publishing). His poems have been widely anthologized, including in the Best American Poetry series. He lives in Manhattan with his family.
Praise For Christopher Sunset…
"Thank goodness for Geoffrey Nutter, whose poetry seems to be powered equally by sunlight, virtue, wonder, and humility...Geoffrey Nutter has handed us a book that records the motions of being human, enacting it in language that leads to a passionate feeling of overflow." Rain Taxi
"Nutter sees things the rest of us do not ... Water's Leaves has the effect of entering a gallery filled with landscape paintings one has never seen ... too beautiful to be missed." Time Out Chicago
