The award-winning poet's powerful exploration of an America ever more unable to process its own toxinsHere, available for the first time in the UK, is the book in which Claudia Rankine first developed the 'American Lyric' form which makes her Forward Prize-winning collection Citizen so distinctive: an original combination of poetry, lyric essay, photography and visual art, virtuosically deployed. Don't Let Me Be Lonely is Rankine's meditation on the self bewildered by race riots, terrorism, medicated depression and television's ubiquitous influence. Written in the years after 9/11, this is an unflinching and deeply felt meditation on life and death in a nation in flux.

Reviews

Rankine brilliantly pushes poetry's forms ... one is left with a mix of emotions that linger and wend themselves into the subconscious * The New York Times * An unforgettable book ... mesmerizing ... terrifying -- Jorie Graham A master work in every sense -- Robert Creeley I don't know of a book of poems that so unabashedly, startlingly, successfully partakes of this contemporary combination of turbulence and torpor ... consuming * Pleiades *
