Praise for A Night in Brooklyn :

"Walking through these poems is like having a mythical landscape with as much brilliance as there is deep shadow. Filled with sensual beauty and fierce urgency, these poems usher the reader through 'the doors, the stairs, / the streets, the endless city.'"
- Tina Chang

"[Nurkse] renders our imperfect world perfectly in this stunning book."
- Publisher's Weekly

D. Nurkse is the author of nine previous books of poetry. His recent prizes include a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Guggenheim Fellowship. A former poet laureate of Brooklyn, he has also written widely on human rights.
