“…think of it as a turbulence machine.” —Mónica de la Torre
“Anna Moschovakis is a great abstract poet in the sense that she explores how formal procedures and found vocabularies and grammatical structures delimit what we can express at a given historical moment. But what makes her an indispensable writer is how she is able—and through her we are able—to experience questions of logical and linguistic relation as intensely lived, as sites not only of critical reflection, but of love. This book completes what I consider an essential poetic trilogy. It has expanded my sense of how I, you, they, we might address one another in the present tense of art.”—Ben Lerner
“Deeply engaging […] Moschovakis sets philosophy, etymology, and memory in motion to show that “There are many ways to follow a thought.” —Publishers Weekly
