Shortlisted for the 2012 Aqua Lansdowne Prize for Poetry

A attention-grabbing, ambling, loitering secret tale in verse, a whoizzit instead of a whodunit.

In this leading edge and arresting narrative poem, Méira Cook's walker, a tender lady, is a personality being written by means of an "old urban poet," who's in flip being written via one other poet, for whom the younger lady, "Ms. Em Cook," has been an amanuensis. consistently witty and infrequently hilarious, feather-light in contact, the e-book is an unique exploration of great matters: adolescence and age; existence, demise and rebirth; the (dis)connection of language and fact; culture and the now. it really is an assemblage of 7 nesting sections, every one of them a kind of chapbook chatting with all the others and rounding out a protracted poem of significant freshness. A Walker within the urban is exceptional, the most unique books Brick has ever published.
