What Is Otherwise Infinite

ebook

Finalist for the New England Book Award in Poetry

As heard on NPR Morning Edition

A New York Public Library Best Book of 2022

A searching, startling new collection of poems from the author of The Möbius Strip Club of Grief and Someone Else's Wedding Vows

Written in four sections with incisive and vivid lyrical language, Bianca Stone's What Is Otherwise Infinite considers how we find our place in the world through themes of philosophy, religion, environment, myth, and psychology. "I deal only in the hardest pain-revivers, symbols and tongues," writes Stone. "I want to tell you only / in the intimacy of our discomfort."

Populated by Archangels, limping in paradise; by allergies of the soul; the intimacy and danger of motherhood; psychic wounds; and dirty, dirty chocolate layer cake, What Is Otherwise Infinite deftly examines our inherent and inherited ideas of how to live, and the experience of the Self—which on one hand is so intensely personal, and on the other, universal.
