An exhilarating collection of prose poems: surreal, dreamlike vignettes. John Yau takes us on startling journey across wastes of “cities fluttering with lost ghosts” and asks the question “what are you doing now that you're here?”

With language as lovely as it is strange, he describes paintings not yet painted, photos not yet taken and movies not yet made... Yau's many admirers will be pleased. Publishers Weekly
