Vanishing Lung Syndrome

Vanishing Lung Syndrome confirms Holub’s special status as one of Europe’s leading poets and as a rare mediator between scientific and literary modes of discourse. This book is darkly witty and mordantly accurate; it documents, among other things, the ignorance, folly and brutality abroad in our world. But it also brims with tenderness, humor, and occasional gleams of hope.

88 pages | 5 x 7 1/2
