Abraham

book blurbs: 

"Charles Olson said that if he ever wrote about the American Civil War, he'd inscribe what he wrote to Frank O Hara. Sparrow's Abraham does the opposite: it is the book that Frank O Hara would have written about the American Civil War if he'd lived upstate, attuned to the materiality of everyday life, listening to the ghosts hiding in books found in small town libraries and yard sales, and the clamor of history discovered in a parking lot in Boiceville, NY, while waiting for a ride home." Marcus Boon, author of In Praise of Copying --Back cover blurb
