Crowd and Not Evening Or Light: A Poem

Front Cover
O Books/Sun & Moon Press, Jan 1, 1992 - Poetry - 103 pages
Poetry. " Leslie Scalapino is a stunningly original writer. Poised on an edge between space and claustrophobia, this poet bears stark witness to the broken narratives of thousands dead or off shore. CROUD AND NOT EVENING OR LIGHT scatters literary criticism, drama and the photographic index across a wilderness of everyday language like love"-Susan Howe.
