Jody Bolz to read at Politics & Prose

Former GW English Creative Writing Professor Jody Bolz has a new book of poetry out and will be reading at Politics & Prose on Sunday, January 12th, at 1:00Shadow Play will be published by Turning Point Books in mid-December:
Shadow Play, a novella in verse by Jody Bolz
Hypnotic and provocative by turns, Shadow Play retraces a journey across Asia in search of the marriage that faltered in its wake. Part love poem, part elegy, Jody Bolz’s new book enacts the conflict between memory and estrangement. In his introduction, novelist Vikram Chandra writes: “an extraordinary act of literary ventriloquism…a conversation among the many selves that were once bound up in love. The poem, in all its formal inventiveness and variety, is an incarnation of the ineluctable passage of time itself.”
