Begging for it Book Description :

"Alex Dimitrov leads us through the streets, bridges, and bedrooms of New York City, sometimes as far away as Buenos Aires and Iceland, and as close as our own darkest corners.

In one poem, we meet Hart Crane at the St. Mark's Baths; in another, the speaker is re...
