A few months before the death of the noted American poet Larry Eigner in February 1996, Green Integer editor Douglas Messerli contracted with him to publish a new collection of his work. Now, edited by Eigner's long-time friend Robert Grenier, this new book has been long awaited by the growing readership of Eigner's poetry. It is a work that gracefully accepts death and, by virture of its very testament to the life around, reiterates Eigner's continual engagement with the world—despite a lifetime spent in a wheel chair.

Larry Eigner was the author of over 40 books of poetry and critical writing. Among his books are windows / walls / yard / way, The World and Its Streets, and Things Stirring Together or Far Apart.
