Poetry. African & African American Studies. "A long-distance runner extraordinaire, Will Alexander parses and devours information, code and arcana lest they parse and devour him, parse and devour us. What but deep seas and distant galaxies would make such a demand his extended soliloquies implicitly ask and overtly answer. These high-toned reflections and imprecations unfold in a march mode almost, an ever insistent rat-a-tat on the rim of a snare, flame and flame's gnarled ignition. Here wonder and menace meet and reconnoiter, a singular, major addition to an already singular, major body of work."—Nathaniel Mackey
