Poetry. California Interest. Paperclip resistance. Volcanoes behind the mic. Purring feline adjustments. The world's not your oyster so much as a bowl of metaphor soup. NOVA NIGHTS is a lyrical book of voices and discoveries about life, love, and loss; hope, light, and color, whose fluid lines suggest genre may be a mere calculation. In Guy Biederman's world imagination shows us the way and creativity takes us home. This is a book of poems you'll want to share with friends, but may hesitate to lend. Better get two.
