Book of Interfering Bodies

Daniel Borzutzky

* Individual store prices may vary.


Beginning with an epigraph from the 9/11 Commission Report, The Book of Interfering Bodies re-imagines the poet as bureaucrat, barbaric writer, and terrorist. In this book, poems that invoke the role of the writer in society alternate with apocalyptic prose pieces that recall Borges' Library of Babel. In the process, Borzutzky creates a 21st century response to our most enduing twentieth century writers, from Beckett to Lispector.
