From the publisher

Meta, mathematical and multilingual, in Ostashevsky's hands the sonnet is a language game. The fourteen sonnets published here grammatically squeeze feeling from form, push language punnily to its limit, and find new frames of belonging. In doing so, they also rediscover the sonnet's interpersonal imperative, its tête-à-tête: "To give one another hearing we repeat once more with feeling".

Eugene Ostashevsky is the author The Life and Opinions of DJ Spinoza and Iterature (Ugly Duckling Presse) and editor and translator of Alexander Vvedensky: An Invitation For Me To Think (NYRB). This is his first UK publication.
