An enthralling collection of poetry from National Book Award winner Paul Monette"Come, / what can the body do but go on, when / the best of us are eaten from within?" writes Paul Monette in the titular poem. This mixture of doom and determinedness is played out with humor and warmth in Monette's poetry. In this quicksilver collection, his words are in perpetual motion, traveling from the Parthenon to Ohio and everywhere in between. Meditating frequently on sex, nostalgia, and love, these poems are serious without ever becoming humorless. They include charming and funny monologues from Isadora Duncan and NoEl Coward. Accompanied by original artwork by David Schorr, No Witnesses is an absorbing book of poetry from an acclaimed author.This ebook features an illustrated biography of Paul Monette including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the Paul Monette papers of the UCLA Library Special Collections.
