In 1995 Carcanet published The Exact Change Yearbook edited by Peter Gizzi, then at the beginning of his career.
The issue featured writing by Gertrude Stein, Barbara Guest, John Wieners, Jack Spicer, (whose work Gizzi has edited), J.H.
Prynne, Clark Coolidge, Michael Palmer, and other avant garde writers; it also featured portfolios of new writing from China, the Caribbean, Russia, Germany, France, Canada, and the UK, and a CD of readings by Ashbery, Brathwaite, Notley, and Berrigan.
Exact Change gives an indication of the breadth of poetic interests that informs Gizzi's poetry - its scope and scale.
He is a remarkable poet, and thirty years of his work are here, in Sky Burial, essentialised for a new, and reconfigured for his long-term, readership.
The book includes previously uncollected work.
