I Walk Around Gathering Up My Garden for the Night
Poetry. This book, whose title in English is I WALK AROUND GATHERING UP MY GARDEN FOR THE NIGHT was Lundquist's first poetry collection, debuting in 1992 when the author was over 40 years old. This collection is both compelling and elusive. There's directness, despite stories being told slant. There's authenticity in league with surrealism. Earnestness holding hands with irony. While the emotional terrain explored is intense, devastating even, Lundquist's tone remains arms-length. The voice is calm but never seeks to comfort.
