Description

"This incandescent metonym of light is, writ small, a marriage of eastern and western wisdoms--a bildungsroman describing the arc of a young man's journey from innocence, through passion and despair, to the great clarity of spiritual understanding. Arnou-Laujeac's intensely visual account, clothed in lyrical image and visionary flame, in Cardona's transcendent translation, easily carries us along in his brightly burning chariot in quest of the Divine."--Sidney Wade

"Beyond Elsewhere defies definition, hovering in that physical space somewhere above us, just beyond reach, but visible in a breathless lyrical cloud. Arnou-Laujeac's poems are psychotropic--a beautiful new voice in poetry."--Victoria Chang

Helene Cardona is an award-winning poet, literary translator, and actor.
