2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist

" Compass Rose [is] a collection in which the poet uses capacious intelligence and lyrical power to offer a dazzling picture of our inter-connected world."--Pulitzer Prize finalist announcement

[Sze] brings together disparate realms of experience--astronomy, botany, anthropology, Taoism--and observes their correspondences with an exuberant attentiveness."-- The New Yorker

A child playing a game, tea leaves resting in a bowl, an abandoned dog, a foot sticking out from a funeral pyre, an Afghan farmer pausing as mortars fire at the enemy: in Arthur Sze's tenth book, the world spins on many points of reference, unfolding with full sensuous detail.

Arthur Sze is the author of The Ginkgo Light (2009), Quipu (2005), and The Redshifting Web (1998). He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
