Sep 13, 2012 | 7:00 pm
Come celebrate the release of D. Nurkse’s newest book, A Night in Brooklyn, at Poets House in the Margo Viscusi Reading Room located on the second floor.
Praise for A Night in Brooklyn :
“Walking through these poems is like having a mythical landscape with as much brilliance as there is deep shadow. Filled with sensual beauty and fierce urgency, these poems usher the reader through ‘the doors, the stairs, / the streets, the endless city.'”
– Tina Chang
“[Nurkse] renders our imperfect world perfectly in this stunning book.”
– Publisher’s Weekly
D. Nurkse is the author of nine previous books of poetry. His recent prizes include a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Guggenheim Fellowship. A former poet laureate of Brooklyn, he has also written widely on human rights.
