Author: Abraham Smith

Publisher: Action Books (2015)

“For over a decade, Abraham Smith has been pouring out into the night of American poetry a brilliantly made, variegated song. Smith’s jangling, brainy, tonically surprising and lyrically cornucopic work is undoubtedly influential but ultimately inimitable. In this his fourth book, Smith confects an entire mythic system, singing into existence a universe made of the ruins of the last one, whatever’s lying around the yard. Ashagalomancy shows us the poet at the height of his powers, a poet of reach, tenderness, ambition, a gimlet eye and a vatic voice.”

–Johannes Göransson

"There’s no one alive writing like Smith, and maybe only Frank Stanford was the closest literary kin. ”

–James Wagner
