About the Author

Adam Zagajewski is the author of several books of poetry, including "Tremor" and "Mysticism for Beginners." He divides his time between Paris and Houston, where he is on the faculty of the Creative Writing Program at the University of Houston.

Reviews

While the absence of apocalypse suggests that Zagajewski has moved beyond the avant-garde, the incredible variety and intricacy of his prose make clear that he is still in the midst of his own quiet revolution.

--John Palattella "Dissent "

Another Beauty, a wise, iridescent book . . . dips in and out of many genres: coming-of-age-memoir, commonplace book, aphoristic musings, vignettes and portraits, and defense of poetry--that is, a defense of the idea of literary greatness.

--Susan Sontag "from the foreword "

A remarkable document, notable for both its literary acuity and its ability to evoke the experience of growing up in a police state, in a culture that is dreary and surreal by turns, where, as [Zagajewski] puts it, 'the Zeitgeist chisels our thoughts and mocks our dreams.'

--Chicago Tribune

Full of pithy and compelling observations on art and society, of luminous descriptions of Krakow and Paris . . . this is a book to be read once through and returned to often.
