By Richard Garcia
One of America's top-rated prose poets, Richard Garcia's The Chair at the same time occurs within the flora and fauna and a speculative international wealthy within the fabulist culture: historic figures roam like ghosts, time is pulled and twisted, and narrative spins without problems out of language. A center of autobiography grounds those poems which are rife with surprises uniting the mythic and the everyday.
