Poetry. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and Georgia Author of the Year, Clifford Brooks's first book of poetry captures the southern experience with poems that Dinty Moore calls "a jazzy, aromatic, and spirited poetic mandala."

"Like Samuel Taylor Coleridge's mariner, we are in a maelstrom of many names. Cliff Brooks calls this maddening place Ignoracium and in THE DRAW OF BROKEN EYES AND WHIRLING METAPHYSICS he gives us both a lexicon for exploring and finding a way out. The spirits of Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti are alive and restless here." James Morrow.
