Jerry Pinto's accomplished first book of poems travels the breath-taking spaces between madness, luminosity and quiet rebellion. Here, even paper has life of its own, and that is just the beginning. The poems find themselves set adrift in an asylum-seeker's dilemma: the making of hopeful sea voyages; the dangerous search for safe havens; the lovely moments of slippage of anchor and sense and what love means. This is a writer who draws precise lines of control and then, with surprising tenderness, crosses them.
