The Corset
Lewis Warsh
$3.95 | paper | 21 pp.
In Camera
ISBN: 9780932597045

LAST COPIES! Poetry. "THE CORSET is not a poem so much as a new way of seeing the world. In these sly and laconic epigrams, Lewis Warsh manages to explore the domain of sexuality with an almost perverse equilibrium. The facts are allowed to speak for themselves, and as the evidence mounts, we realize that we have been taken beyond the facts into the darkness of the human imagination. There is a stunning intelligence at work here, a fierce, deadpan wit that disturbs and enlightens in equal measure."
—Paul Auster
