NOW AVAILABLE from Graywolf Press
A BuzzFeed Favorite Books of Spring 2019 pick
“Gibson is masterful with imagery. [His] writing is smart and crisp.” —The Washington Post
“Exuberant, electric, and frank.” —BuzzFeed
Elegiac, funny, and candid, Little Glass Planet is a manual for paying attention to a world that is increasingly engineered to distract us from our own humanity. It’s a book that points toward hope, offering the possibilities of a “we” that only the open frequency of poetry can create, possibilities that are indistinguishable from love.
“There is nothing like reading poems by Dobby Gibson. No one else writes with such irresistibly odd and goofy generosity, such humble intelligence, such playful, painful, and hilarious compassion. I greet each new book by him with delicious anticipation, saying, first to myself and then to anyone who will listen, this is his best one yet, and here I am doing it again.” —Matthew Zapruder
