9780887394959: No Other Life

No Other Life gathers in a single volume two earlier books by Gary Young, Days and the award-winning Braver Deeds, with the final book in his trilogy, If He Had. Utilizing a radically brief prose poem that in its spare lucidity leaves after images burned into the readers imagination, Young weaves a pattern of compelling and often harrowing correspondences that Ethan Paquin described in Quarterly West as an exploration of thresholds, of levels of human endurance. Although every poem stands as an independent utterance, each book suggests a discrete poetic unit, and the entire trilogy can be read as a long poem in three parts. Critic Stephen Kessler has written: despite the tragedy at the heart of this work, there is also a sense of redemption and inspiration, of art capturing life at its most uncontrollable and squeezing out of it a sweetness that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Review:

...This is a book one must wrestle with as well as read. -- Sherod Santos

Gary Young has honed a sinuous, brief prose-poem form that carries a flavor uniquely its own... -- Jane Hirshfield

The language has been so thoroughly puri?ed that truth becomes, in the telling, austerely beautiful. -- Jay Parini

There's no word for what Young does, only for what he accomplishes... -- Dorianne Laux

Transparent and refreshing, vital... This is a book Basho would admire. -- Sam Hamill
