The best book by our best living literary essayist.

—Forrest Gander

The brilliant net of details that Weinberger casts and recasts in his various inventive approaches to form is precisely what constitutes a superlative poetic imagination. And it’s what holds the essays—and us—trembling and raging and hallucinating together.

—Forrest Gander

His remarkable use of simultaneity and collage is something that didn’t quite exist before. His work makes you sit up in your seat.
