Sight Lines by Arthur Sze

From the publisher: “From the current phenomenon of drawing calligraphy with water in public parks in China to Thomas Jefferson laying out dinosaur bones on the White House floor, from the last sighting of the axolotl to a man who stops building plutonium triggers, Sight Lines moves through space and time and brings the disparate and divergent into stunning and meaningful focus.”

About the author: Arthur Sze is the author of 10 poetry collections, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Compass Rose. Sze is the past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEA fellowships, and a Lannan Literary Award, among other honors.
