Our first version of this selection from one of Eastern Europe’s major figures sold out. The new version adds two sequences--"Give Me Back My Rage" and "Heaven’s Ring"--as well as some previously unpublished sections of the justly famous series, "The Little Box." Simic and Popa are a perfect match. A book for surrealists, mythographers, postmodernists, scientists, and lovers of poetry and games. Winner of the PEN Translation Prize.
