Poetry. Winner of the 2011 Cider Press Review Book Award, selected by Jeanne Marie Beaumont. Beaumont writes, Somewhat indescribable, as original things often are, the poems of Joseph Fasano feel hunted, gathered, built like fires, brewed like storms. Elemental and feral, FUGUE FOR OTHER HANDS is full of disturbing deeds and haunted rituals. At once mythic and specific, these poems are blood-stained, grief-scarred, providing their solace only from their commitment to art's depths. 'Say you were the wild gift,' one poem states; Fasano has such a gift, and therefore with his bare hands and torn heart makes poems worth living in.
