Beyond Elsewhere

By Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac, Hélène Cardona

Price: $16.00



About the Book

"This incandescent metonym of light is, writ small, a marriage of eastern and western wisdoms—a bildungsroman describing the arc of a young man's journey from innocence, through passion and despair, to the great clarity of spiritual understanding. Arnou-Laujeac's intensely visual account, clothed in lyrical image and visionary flame, in Cardona's transcendent translation, easily carries us along in his brightly burning chariot in quest of the Divine."—Sidney Wade

"Beyond Elsewhere defies definition, hovering in that physical space somewhere above us, just beyond reach, but visible in a breathless lyrical cloud. Arnou-Laujeac's poems are psychotropic—a beautiful new voice in poetry."—Victoria Chang

Hélène Cardona is an award-winning poet, literary translator, and actor.
