The Pedestrians

Item Details

"Zucker is a poet of bottom-scraping, blood-chilling existential anxiety, one among many, and a poet of New York City, one among many, and a poet of American Jewish inheritance, one among many, and one of the funniest, too."#151; Boston Review Rachel Zucker returns to themes of motherhood, marriage, and the life of an artist in this double collection of poems. Fables , written in prose form, shows the reader different settings (mountains, ocean, Paris) of Zucker's travels and meditations on place. The Pedestrians brings us back to her native New York and the daily frustrations of a woman torn by obligations. That Great Diaspora I'll never leave New York & when I do I too will be unbodied#151;what? you imagine I might transmogrify? I'm from nowhere which means here & so wade out into the briny dream of elsewheres like a released dybbyk but can't stand the soulessness now everyone who ever made sense to me has died & everyone I love grows from my body like limbs on a rootless tree Rachel Zucker is the author of Museum of Accidents , which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. She is also the author of The Bad Wife , The Last Clear Narrative , Eating in the Underworld , and Annunciation .
