    About The Book

    “X” is the kiss and betrayal, the embrace, the crucifixion, the mathematical unknown. In his sixth book of poems, James Galvin writes from a deep, philosophical engagement with the landscape and faces a “vertigo of solitude” with his marriage dissolved, his only daughter grown and gone, and the log house he built by hand abandoned. “What did I love that made me believe it would last?” he asks.

    Something has to be true enough to be

    Taken for granted.

    In the hospital I saw

    An old man

    Caressing the face of an old woman.

    This same man, young, caressed her face

    In just that way.

    Thatโ€™s the stillness

    At the center of changeโ€”

    A sadness worth dying for, I swearโ€”

    There is no other.

    โ€”from “Dying into What Iโ€™ve Done”

    “James Galvin has a voice and a world, perhaps the two most difficult things to achieve in poetry.” โ€” The Nation

    “In James Galvin we have a superior poet.” โ€” American Book Review

    “Galvinโ€™s poems have the virtues of precise observation and original language, yes, but what he also brings to the table is a rigor of mind and firmness of phrasing which make the slightest of his poems an architectural pleasure.” โ€” Harvard Review

    James Galvin has published five collections of poetry, most recently Resurrection Update: Collected Poems 1975 โ€” 1997, which was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the Lenore Marshall/The Nation Prize. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed prose book, The Meadow and a novel, Fencing the Sky. He lives in Laramie, Wyoming, where he works as a rancher part of each year, and in Iowa City, where he is a member of the permanent faculty of the University of Iowa Writersโ€™ Workshop.
