“A dream is a poem disguised as a story,” says Rodger Kamenetz. “I had a practice of writing down my dreams  every night but these were not yet poems. One dawn I found the secret: instead of writing down my dream, I could write a poem instead.  A poem in the wake of the dream. That morning Yonder was born.” What better form, then, to record the dream than the prose poem? This collection of “proses” from the author of The History of Last Night’s Dream, The Jew in the Lotus and To Die Next To You brims with respect for the genre, with homages to forebears from Baudelaire to Max Jacob, Russel Edson to Kafka, along with Rodger’s own unique reinvigorations of the form.

Available in paper and ebook.
