Reviews

"Gemma Gorga's Book of Minutes, in Sharon Dolin's beautiful translation, is by far the best book of prose poems I have read in the past decade. Like a house mirror, each prose poem here 'retains the memory of all the souls who have gazed at themselves inside it.' The result is spellbinding and surprising, as the voice of these poems searches for the mystery within the mundane."--Ilya Kaminsky
"Gorga is a magician, her short, vivid prose poems perfect little houses where an instant, poignant to joyful, is captured. 'The mouth is small' begins the last poem, but by then Gorga will have told you a story as big as the world. In Sharon Dolin's masterful translation, every page of Book of Minutes shimmers with life."--Jesse Lee Kercheval
"Dolin's thoughtful and supple translation of Gemma Gorga's moving prose poem collection is a welcome and timely contribution to world literature."--Rowan Ricardo Phillips
