Abstract:

"Through Jo Langdon's gaze, the ordinary world is transformed into a snow globe of wondrous possibility. The city and its objects move impressionistically, summer bodies dissemble, and daily routines take on an uncanny glow. Domestic realties are glimpsed or suggest, small histories reveal a chiaroscuro of darkness and light. ... Deftly extending the visual sensibility of late modernists like Barbara Guest and Veronica Forrest-Thomson, Glass Life draws together a vivid sensibility with observations that are both sharply astute and powerfully intimate. This second major collection confirms Langdon as a compelling force in contemporary poetry. - Ann Vickery"--Back cover.
