A Night in Brooklyn

"A Night in Brooklyn is as much a celebration of the borough as it is a meditation on history, time, and the furious love of the places the poet inhabits. Walking through these poems is like having a mythical landscape lit with as much brilliance as there is deep shadow. Filled with sensual beauty and fierce urgency, these poems usher the reader through 'the doors, the stairs,/​the streets, the endless city.'"
–Tina Chang, Brooklyn Poet Laureate
