After You Surrender / Ce qu’il reste d’abandon
Poems by Laurent Maindon. Translated from French to English by Sabine Huynh.
Leaky Boot Press, 2017.
Website’s blurb about the book: Laurent Maindon’s poetry tries to develop an architecture of implicit and slow motion, that both speaks to and reveals the inner self. “I’m still convinced that understanding the world is possible through its shaky distortions. The underbelly of life, of the world, and their dark places especially interest me. But these things only have relevance when there is concrete imagery to illuminate them. That’s the paradox, darkness needing light, the believable needing the improbable.”
