A Village Life
  • A Village Life


    Louise Glück.


    FSG: 2009. First edition. Hardcover in a dust jacket. Near fine.


    "At the same time as the sun’s setting,
    a farm worker’s burning leaves.


    It’s nothing, this fire.
    It’s a small thing, controlled,

    like a family run by a dictator.


    Still, when it blazes up, the farm worker disappears;
    from the road, he’s invisible."
