Description

"Fearless hybridization.... Jordan creates spaces where physics and poetry, comic books and jazz, memory and loss, come together."—American Prospect


This ambitious collection explores the intersection of the infinite world of physics with the perplexities of the human condition. Employing both narrative and cinematic structure, Jordan re-creates the lives of Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, and comic book superheroes—the Green Lantern, the Atom—and also reveals himself in poems of recollection and loss.
