Product Details

Praise

“Nurkse, former poet laureate of Brooklyn, excels at conveying . . . [a] kind of unaccompanied loneliness . . . [He] soberly relates the cruelties of the world.”
–Time Out New York
“D. Nurkse’s The Fall features three highly personal sequences of poems concerning death, love, and illness. Their drama and the universality of their themes draw us in . . . The Fall–mystical, mesmerizing, elegant–is a cat’s eye of a collection.”
–Bill Christophersen, Poetry
“D. Nurkse, despite his modesty, seems to be weaving poetry’s various movements towards a cohesive zenith, which takes him beyond characterization. He may be a contemporary poet, but his words will live beyond him.”
–Anne Hamilton, Memphis Commercial Appeal
“A collection of exquisitely-shaped poems highlighted by the poet’s gift for delicate yet piercing epiphanies.”
–Dennis Loy Johnson, Athens Banner-Herald
“Nurkse’s style is simple, almost conversational, yet underneath the words, the reader senses great emotion.”
–Library Journal
