A Night in Brooklyn

Authors: D Nurkse

Published by CB Editions

ISBN: 9780957326644

- +

D. Nurkse’s new collection is a love letter to a remembered Brooklyn – a place full of tenements, tool factories, dark bars and wild gardens. There are memories of serving truckers at the Arnold Grill, ‘topping off drafts with a paddle’, or the deaf white alley cat surviving winter out on the stoop. Offset against this New York locale are moments of elsewhere – travel, riddles in French, fragments of songs from Andalucía – all bound by an awareness of time slipping away.

“D. Nurkse is an American poet... relatively unknown to British readers. With... Voices Over Water that looks set to change.”
Ben Wilkinson, TLS

“Gems of gravid simplicity”
The New Yorker

“Delicate, dreamlike lyrics”
Dai George, Poetry Review

D. Nurkse has published nine previous books of poetry, most recently Voices Over Water (CB Editions, 2011), which was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
