Poetry. "In TWO, Paul Vangelisti connects the antipodes of the extraordinary literary geography he has been creating through the course of his numerous previous works. Taken separately or together, the diptych of TWO finds Paul Vangelisti at the height of his poetic, intellectual and philosophical powers. Simply put, there are precious few poets writing now who can match Vangelisti's brilliance"—Dennis Phillips. TWO includes the complete works "Alabaster" and "A Capable Hand, or Maps for a Lost Dog."
