Sierra Golden :: The Slow Art


Sierra Golden

Reading & Signing


Friday, October 19th



"The poems in THE SLOW ART are boiled down to unflinching essentials. Golden refuses to hide behind the easy fires and maximal adornment of so much contemporary poetry, giving us a rough-edged vision that drifts out into a world of machinery, work, and family. The art here is that the poems drift inward, too—to the landscape of the self where time, language, and experience become a tangle of the brutal, the mysterious, the essential, and the celebrated. And I celebrate this book whose heart contains the world and those who work it 'for her, for him, for them, for me, for you.'"—Michael McGriff
