Poetry. "TO TELL THE LAMP offers more than "one way of redemption," inviting us tofollow its hypnotic and concatenating meditations, asking us to think forourselves about structures of time and nearness and the many ways we readyourselves in preparation for truly reading"—Susan Stewart. "Lisa Lubasch's new writing often seems wryly aphoristic but the bits ofknowledge it articulates nonetheless emerge suddenly, the product not ofLubasch's wisdom but of her timing. She employs what Guy Debord calls'a technique of transient passage through varied ambiances,' allvoluntarily entered, and truly worth entering. I have found this bookutterly exhilarating in its daring and intelligence"—Lyn Hejinian.
