Short Talks, by Anne Carson

Short Talks, by Anne Carson

Each piece in Anne Carson’s Short Talks is a startling gem – some disorienting, some intimate, some wry, some wistful, many bright and impish. My favourite, combining almost all of those states, is:

Short Talk on Bonheur D’Etre Bien Aimee

Day after day I think of you as soon as I wake up. Someone has put cries of birds on the air like jewels.

This volume, slender in multiple dimensions, will be so easy to go back to again and again.

Thank you to Brick Books for providing a review copy of Short Talks, by Anne Carson.
