Tim Kelly Reading at Open Books

We're happy to pass on word that Timothy Kelly, author of Toccata & Fugue (Floating Bridge, 2005), will be reading from his brand new full-length collection from Oberlin Press, The Extremities, on Thursday, April 24 at 7:30 pm at Open Books. A reception will follow.

The Extremities rescues from the drab columns of textbooks the clinical language of tendons and bones, unlocking an enormous previously unguessed range of metaphor and reference. The poems are unique. Their brilliant engagement with the concrete and objective brings the inner life to light with a crystalline concision for which I had not known I hungered. This is a wonderful book,something truly new.” —Christopher Howell
