Poetry. "At a time of extrodinary displacement and global confusion, these insitently sane poems manage a remarkable interjection of viable realities, of multiple twists, turns and provisions of language's singular instrument, syntax, and the words which it puts in order. Each turn here is a possibility, an endlessly refracting multiplicity of instance. Each word takes its own step, as it must, toward recognition"—Robert Creeley. "This is a book of tight, compressed poems with a big heart behind them"—Juliana Spahr. James Wagner lives in Syracuse, New York. THE FALSE SUN RECORDINGS is his first book.
