Fast, Paperback / softback Book

Fast Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Finalist for the Neustadt International Prize for Literature 2020.

Winner of the 2018 Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry.

A 2017 Poetry Book Society Recommendation. In her first new collection in five years, leading American poet Jorie Graham returns with her most exhilarating, personal, and formally inventive work to date.

In Fast Graham's long, pliant line takes sense as far as it can go, exploring the limits of the human and the dark seductions of the post-human.

Conjuring an array of voices and perspectives - from bots to the holy shroud, the ocean floor and a medium transmitting from beyond the grave - these poems give form to the increasingly rapid transformation of our planet and ourselves.

As it navigates cyber life; 3d-printed 'life'; life after death; and biologically, chemically, and electronically modified life, Fast lights up the border of our new condition as individuals and as a species on the brink.
