Ghost Country Book Description :

“In a sober and carefully understated voice I say: this is a damn good poet.” Al Purdy on Backing into Heaven Ghost Country enters the difficult electric air between cultures and lovers, alive to the fierce exoticism of desire but also to its confusions, its political and personal dissonances. Set in contemporary China, these poems spring from the intense anguished observations of the lover of a culture who is also, inescapably, the outsider. Lyrical, candid, tough, they are rooted in a passionate honesty that refuses to sentimentalize or look away. In Steve Noyes we have a writer who has steadily hewed to his own course, producing writing with its own unforgettable tang. I turned from you. One look back – your face wet, eyes downcast – then ...
